What Are The Side Effects Of Fosamax?

What Are The Side Effects Of Fosamax?

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

Fosamax killed my stomach. I looked 5 months PG and I swear the neighbors could hear my stomach noises. lol It took about a year after I stopped taking it for my stomach to settle down. Taking this med on an empty stomach, then not eating for 45 minutes is so hard on the stomach.
I am taking calcium, vit K2, and vit D. I do weight-bearing exercises 5x a week.
My dentist advised against the IV meds, as he said he would not work on my teeth if I were taking them. Since I have ongoing dental work, I decided not to take that either.

I haven't heard of any osteoporosis medications that aren't harmful in some way. I don't know what to do. Right now I am just on Calcium and Vitamin D, but I see my doctor soon for other medication. I had to wait until I had completed dental work to start a medication.

Everyone of us has to take on our own health issues, and find good solutions for ourselves. One of the best things we can do is research, and find out how to help ourselves with eating, exercise, supplements, and more. Finding a good doctor is important also, one who cares about our issues and will take the time to listen to us, and answer our questions. There are bad doctors out there and there are also good doctors out there, it is up to us to find the good ones. I go to healthgrades to help me find the better doctors.

I have found webmd and mayoclinic to have the most reliable information on my health issues. Hope this helps someone.
