    I have used shark cartilage for joint pain. It was prescribed by a doctor. It is very helpful. I was instructed 10 years ago to take one tablet for 7 days--then stay off it for 7 days--back on for 7 days, etc. I have found that I now need one tablet 740 mg every day to prevent pain or swelling of my joints.
