This drug has been effective, but left my knees feeling full, if that makes sense. I still can't kneel on them yet. I guess the pain is less, but now I'm getting other pain under my knee caps. So the jury is still out for me. I'd take anything - just trying to prolong replacements.

I HAVE ONE MORE SHOT TO COMPLETE THE 5 THAT WERE SUGG BY MY SURGEON. UNDERGOING DEPRESSION. I AM 40YRS OLD AND FEEL 70. I CANT WALK. EVEN SLEPPING AT NIGHT IS HORRIBLE. I HAVE CONSTANT PAIN, SADLY MORE THEN BEFORE I STARTED THE "TREATMENT". I WOULD NEVER RECOMM IT TO ANYONE. I AM USING A WALKER TO HELP SUPPORT MY STEPS, TOTAL MESS. THE INJECTIONS ARE VERY PAINFUL.I WISH I HAD NEVER HAD THEM DONE.

The injections were extremely painful. One injection caused an involuntary relex movement and blood spurted out all over. I listened to other patients screaming or making loud exclamations (like I did). After the first set, I could barely walk for hours afterward. That is included in the manufacturer's list of side effects. The doctor did not warn me, nor did he believe it happened to anyone. I have stage 4 out of 4 of osteoarthritus in both knees. Supartz did not effect my pain, and it's slightly worse. Never again.

After just 1 shot I had severe pain and swelling in leg and was unable to bear any weight on it for 24 hrs. Bad headache and back pain for 3 days and didn’t feel well for a week. Knee doesn’t click as much but still sorer than it was before the shot.

Relief has lasted between 6 months to almost 1 year. Works best if start injections as soon as first bit of pain returns. Have taken for 9 years.
