Hello Nedya, thank you for asking.
How long has the pain been felt? Are there other symptoms? Pain can come from disorders of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, or nerves. We recommend that you invite your grandmother / grandfather to consult in detail with a neurologist. In the elderly easy to injury to muscles, joints, nerves, and even bones. If no obvious cause is sought, it is not impossible that the disorder will spread and worsen. The doctor may have to do a radiological examination such as an x-ray, CT-scan, or MRI if necessary.
Tell in detail whether the trigger for the pain. Is there a history of falls or accidents? Is there any work that can cause injury? Inform this to the doctor. Regarding the drug you are referring to, it looks like the brand is a supplement for bones and joints. Its composition is in the form of calcium carbonate, glucosamine (obtained from shrimp shells), magnesium, zinc, and vitamin D3. In general, the consumption of these supplements according to dosage, is relatively safe. However, you must note, is there a history of seafood allergies. If so, it is not recommended to take the supplement.
Another thing that needs attention, because the supplement will be consumed by the elderly, make sure there is no impairment of kidney function. The calcium content in these supplements may make kidney function worse, in people with kidney disorders. In addition, as the name suggests, the brand is a supplement, not a drug. That is, its function is only as a companion to maintain the function of bones and joints so as not to decrease, not to treat disorders that have now occurred. Supplements are more towards prevention, not treatment.
So, as mentioned earlier, it would be nice if the disorder is further investigated in consultation with a neurologist. In the meantime, try not to do too heavy activities.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
