Am Really Concerned About Starting Alendronic Acid, Already The Adcal I'm Taking Had Caused Horrendous Constipation, Any Tips? Thank You

I started Alendeonic acid & Adcal tablets at the beginning of Jan after just being diagnosed with osteoporosis. I also had horrendous constipation, despite eating lots of fruit, veg, prunes, drinking water. Came off it after 4 weeks, took a week before back to normal. Still taking the AA tablets. Got an appointment with Dr to ask if I can have just Vit D, no calcium. Think I get enough from healthy diet.

I’ve heard that calcium supplements do more harm than good .
I’ve been with a herbal doctor for a year instead of taking alondronic and adcal , I’ve been fine and fallen twice with no breaks so thought I’d have another bone density scan done , doctors not happy that I’m off alandronic so I’ve had a blood test and am off for another density scan ! This will tell me if I’ve done the right thing or not , watch this spade 😂

Vitamin D3 needs to be in addition to Vit.K2

I just started taking it and am doing fine so far. Alendronate has been around for a long time, it seemed to me to be a good thing to start with.
