    Has anyone noticed a hive type reaction to glucosamine during really hot sweaty rides??

    No and I sweat profusely. About 3 months ago I started taking fish oil (8 grams a day), and glucosamine / chondroitin, and went off ibuprofin for the most part. Just switched to a glucosamine / msm product. Thats not saying it couldn't happen.

    No reaction here, and I take glucosamine, with or without condroitin, daily.

    I've never had this reaction to the glucosamine and I've been taking it for a few years.

    Are the hives all over or located on a certain area of the body?

    From Wikipedia:

    "Since glucosamine is usually derived from shellfish, those allergic to shellfish may wish to avoid it."

    Okay, I have no clue here. What is this stuff and why would you want to take it anyway? Does it make you go faster?

    Those that have a tendency toward Gout may also wish to avoid it.

    Floyd Landis tested positive for glucosamine and was stripped of his TDF win.
    Or, am I thinking of something else?

    Something else! --excessive testosterone. I take it too, it really seems to eliminate achy knees and arthritis flares in my fingers.

    I do break out in hives, but did before I started taking it. If I work out to the point of a good sweat & am immediately after in a cool environment (like outdoors in the fall, or in air conditioning) I will get hives. Sometimes they are just localized to the legs if I have been hiking or climbing--so I think it has to do with a temperature differential.

    A little testosterone never hurt anyone.

    My daughter's horse takes glucosamine. When I'm at the barn helping her clean the stalls, I usually grab a pinch out of the horse's medicine chest, just to drive her crazy. Horse joint medicine has a nice citrusy flavor -- the horse takes it with alfalfa pellets, I just take it straight w/a little water.

    I've never had an adverse reaction from glucosamine.

    I take it, my wife takes it and our dog takes it. None of us have had any problems.
