Some of you may be taking Glucosamine as a supplement, (moderate osteo-arthritus of the knee.)
I may be being cynical but the recent classification by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) as described in this link:-

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/change-in-the-classification-of-certain-glucosamine-products

appears to me to be a "get out clause" for putting most Glucosamine products as being not available on prescription.
(A complex issue I know.)
