Medication That Does Not Cause Osteonecrosis Of The Jaw

Medication That Does Not Cause Osteonecrosis Of The Jaw

I have osteopenia of more than 10 years duration. My MD would like me to take Fosamax. I have bad teeth--I receive regular dental care and floss and brush with prescription strength fluoride toothpaste like I'm supposed to, but I have numerous crowns/fillings, 4 implants, I've had several root canals and broken teeth. I'm wondering what besides Prolia or biphosphanates I could take. I am afraid of osteonecrosis of the jaw--I'm also afraid of breaking a hip. I take calcium and Vit D supplements… read more

What Medications Are Recommended For Osteoporosis?

What Medications Are Recommended For Osteoporosis?

My doctor put me on Fosamax and I ended up taking it for at least 10 years. I finally took myself off the drug because side effects sounded so bad. My doctor didn't agree with me.

I Have Been Given An RX Of Alendronate 70 Mg Tab (generic For Fosamax)

I Have Been Given An RX Of Alendronate 70 Mg Tab (generic For Fosamax)

This would be my first time taking this medicine (once a week tablet) along with Calcium Citrate (1200mg) and Vitamin D3 (1000mg). The latter to be taken daily. Is anyone in this group taking this RX. I have read the side effects, but am more interested in knowing about those who have experienced this medicine before I begin its course.
Thank You so much!

Is it safe to take Risedronate for many years

Alendronate Or Alendronic Acid

Alendronate Or Alendronic Acid

It’s improved my bone density somewhat and the Endocrinologist at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital was pleased that my Lumbar spine is now Osteopinea, wrists and hips are not so good.
I am concerned about the stomach bloating and constipation of my bowel.
My question is does Aledronic Acid +Caliciferol with Vitamin D (Fonat Plus) cause gum ulceration and pain as this is an ongoing problem. Could it be the Acid component?
