REgardless of glue choice if you are using PVA wood glue or epoxy – you need to get the surfaces clean again.

If it is hide glue, like shipwright mentions – hide glue can bond to itself and is reversible.

If you can open it up, I would pop the joints, then use hide glue again – if you don’t want to mess with a glue pot, use Titebond Liquid hide.

If it is a modern piece of furniture, I would go with a slow epoxy, because you are likely to need some of the gapfilling properties to get it tight again – as the joints are already loose.
