MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is an anti-inflammatory.  It isn't really addressing the issues involved in arthritis such as poor quality synovial fluid and damaged cartilage and supporting tissue.  It may help ease the pain, but I think it's an indirect treatment at best.  Try a good Oral Hyaluronic Acid supplement.  Two that I know work well are HA-30 and Conquer III made by a company called Kinetic Technologies.

I forgot to mention, the MSM molecule has "carrier" properties, ie anything you take WITH MSM will penetrate the tissues of the body more effectively, due to its sulfur.  For our horse owner friends, this is exactly like using a DMSO, dimethylsulfoxide.  

Anyway, the important thing is that if you take MSM in conjunction with an opiate, it may lower the toxic threshold, making less of the drug more powerful and therefore potentially more dangerous.

BE CAREFUL!
