Evista

Evista

Is Evista the same as Alendronic acid? I’m supposed to take the A acid but decided not to due to all side effects I keep hearing about. Have just started on Algeacal and Strontium boost.

I would not spend the money on algaecal after reading about what's in it I decided to just buy what's in it and find a book that recommended what doses I should take. I read a book by dr. Lani Simpson got a guide to bone health I got it on Amazon and she has all the recommended dosages that you should take up the nutrients and that's what I do. She is about 70 years old and got diagnosed when she was 45 and still basically has the same phone help that she had back then and she is doing it all by nutrition and supplements and exercising. Exercising is a big part of this disease and keeping it in check.

Zolendronic acId (also called Reclast) is a once a year infusion, done at a hospital.
The main side effect is to feel very shivery afterwards. With me it only lasted till the end of that day, but some people have it for longer.
I also have a persistent prickly heat rash. Docs say not connected but I am sure it is.
