Well, the Glucosamine is a supplement, not a medication. It is substance that is naturally found in our joints and there has actually been no proof that supplementing it will actually replace it in the joints and help.

The Diacerein is an actual drug, it works by inhibiting interleukin-1.

Bifosa contains Alendronate and this helps with bone metabolism, to prevent them from breaking down further.

Now, of the two actual medications, they both do different things, so it can't really be said that either one is better than the other.

The only real way to discover what will help her is to actually try it and see how it affects her.

Are there any other comments or questions?
