I do not take calcium or alondrolic anymore, a nurse told me a teaspoon of sesame seeds a day is enough calcium, also jelly and of course sunshine

I don't know about Hip Fractures caused by Alendronate as i thought that was what it is suppose to prevent. My dentist would not pull a tooth because of the risk of bone death death if he broke my jaw.

Unfortunately due to IBS-D I would not be able to tolerate sesame seeds and due to a potential BCC on my nose (soon to be biopsied) I need to stay out of the sun!

I was diagnosed two years ago. I was put on calcium and alendronic acid. After many month I started to feel very ill and had sight problems. I was fast tracked for a brain scan. Nothing wrong. I took myself off the alendronic acid and I got well. I now go to a gym regularly in the hope that this is helping. My doctor was going back to the Consultant to discuss other treatments but I have heard nothing. I am reluctant to go back as I fear medication now after being so ill. I will keep going with the calcium and watch the diet but I am scared. Anyone had the same experience?

My doctor told me 5 years is the maximum. I had a bone density test after taking it for 3 years. My doctor was concerned that my bones would get too hard and break as a result. When my bone density test showed my osteoporosis got worse and after losing another 1 inch in height, I was told to continue taking the Alendronate.
