MSM Safety

Reasonable doses taken by mouth for a limited period of time are probably safe for most people, especially if high-quality supplements are used (since such supplements are less likely to be contaminated or have other problems). Some people may be more likely to experience problems due to the supplement. Therefore, you should talk with your healthcare provider prior to starting treatment if you:
  • Have any chronic or severe health problems
  • Have any allergies, including allergies to foods, dyes, or preservatives
  • Are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant (see MSM and Pregnancy)
  • Are breastfeeding (see MSM and Breastfeeding).
Make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all other medicines you are taking, including prescription and non-prescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
