Has Anyone Had Any Side Effects From Fosamax? My Doctor Didn't Give Me Any Options.

Has Anyone Had Any Side Effects From Fosamax? My Doctor Didn't Give Me Any Options.

I am 68 years old with Scoliosis, spinal stenosis and degenerated disk in spine, I broke 9 bones in my foot and snapped the tendon 6 years ago and had surgery, I have since broken bones in my foot twice, that brought on a bone density scan and the diagnosis of Osteoporosis. Thanks for any information you can give me.

The rosehips are Vit C. You also need calcium and Vit D.

I’ve been on fosamax for the past year. So far so good. I asked about other treatments. My doctor said as long as I can tolerate fosamax I will stay in it. I’m very good about taking as directed. She said this gives us options down the road to use the other medications if necessary. I won’t know if it helps until my next bone density test but the blood work slows that it is working. Hope this helps.
