Has Anyone Had Any Side Effects From Fosamax? My Doctor Didn't Give Me Any Options.

I am 68 years old with Scoliosis, spinal stenosis and degenerated disk in spine, I broke 9 bones in my foot and snapped the tendon 6 years ago and had surgery, I have since broken bones in my foot twice, that brought on a bone density scan and the diagnosis of Osteoporosis. Thanks for any information you can give me.

Hi, I Have Been Advised To Start Therapy, Forteo Is Recommended. Has Anyone Been Told Not To Take It Before Dental Surgery?
