I have been taking generic Fosamax 70mg. going on 3 years recently my dentist said suggested I should stop taking it. My last test showed I now have Osteopenia. My doctor said to continue with it. Can anyone tell me how long they have been on it. I am worried ablut it's side effects. Thank you!
Generic Fosmax is call Alendronate I had a couple neighbors prescribed this medication it's the same thing as Fosmax they are both Bisphosphonate, it's safe to take up to 5 yrs,unless your Doctor feel you need to stay on longer,my Doctor instructed me to stop taking Fosmax after 5 yrs because it had worked I went from Osteoporosis to Osteopenia...I hope this information can be of some use to you ,God bless
Have you ever wondered, how Stem Cells have the ability to reproduce and become any type of cell the body needs, replacing damaged cells in the body's tissues and organs -- whatever and wherever they are.
EVERYBODY has Stem Cells; EVERYBODY uses Stem Cells; Everybody uses Stem Cells every day; Stem Cells work ..... and they work every time !

The infusion is nothing to worry about as it only takes 20 minutes. You sit in a comfortable chair and the nurse brings you tea or coffee. They monitor your BP and temp before, during and after. You feel very shivery for the rest of that day. I also have a persistent rash, which docs say is not connected, but I think it is.
I can’t take most tablets as they are really bad for my stomach and I have had stomach ulcers in the past from a variety of meds.
Fosamax apparently is good for the bones, however not good for the teeth bones. I stopped taking while I was having dental work several years ago. Due to breaking my wrist and having pins put in, my doctor has talked me into taking Fosamax again. The other choice is the yearly IV drip. I am not fond of needles so I will try the weekly dosage
I couldn’t take this, or most other tablets including anti inflammatories as things like that have given me stomach ulcers in the past .I've been having the annual infusions of Reclast( Zolendronic acid). Side effects - very shivery just for the rest of that day. Also I have a persistent prickly heat rash. Docs say not connected, but I am sure it is! I may refuse third infusion and instead switch to an algae based calcium which has been producing some good results in strengthening bones. It is expensive - of course!
Thanks for the info you sent me!
