Unable To Take Oral Alendronic Acid Due To Stomach Pain,can Anyone Tell Me If They Were Able To Tolerate Injections Without Pain

Unable To Take Oral Alendronic Acid Due To Stomach Pain,can Anyone Tell Me If They Were Able To Tolerate Injections Without Pain

I am very concerned as my spine is in a bit of a mess ,I have multiple fractures in upper spine,as stated unable to take oral Bisophenates, due to stomach pain, I was wondering if anyone else was the same and went on to tolerate one of the injections, if so which is the least toxic, as I have lots of intolerances.

Zolendronic acid and Reclast are the same thing - different countries have different names for it.

I had my first injection a few weeks ago because of stomach issues as well. I have GERD and an ulcer so I’m sure that didn’t help. I had no problems with the injection at all. I am on Prolia.

I also had stomach upset and stopped taking the pill. I then opted for Reclast infusions, once a year for three years. I had no side affects from the Reclast infusions. My bone density has held pretty steady.

Hi, Sylvia, Sorry you are struggling. I took Alendronic acid for a year and suffered with horrible heartburn and acid reflux. I kept agitating about something else and saw a new consultant who prescribed Zoledronic acid infusion. It takes about 20 minutes once a year. I was considered a good candidate as I had no other side effects apart from the stomach ones. Maybe you could enquire about it. I have had two infusions and should get one more then another DEXA scan to see if I am mended.... Well, I can always hope. Good luck!

I’ve had two annual infusions of Reclast and now only have Osteopenia. I also take a lot of supplements, prunes, Kefir, Greek yogurt, a healthy diet, exercise, hydrotherapy, mindfulness and meditation. No idea which has helped most!
I do have a prickly heat rash that doctors say is not connected but I wonder...
