After going off tamoxifen three years ago after breast cancer, (1993) doc put me on Evista - extreme bone pain within 30 days, tried calcitonin nasal spray for 30 days-same results. I could barely walk or use my hands. Doc said other meds for bone density would probably have same results. Symptoms, including multiple attacks of bronchitis, uti's, sinusitis, blurred vision and arthritis lasted for the next 10-12 months. Finally feeling good again, new doc badly wants me on fosamax. I'm fighting it. Dexa scores are ok for hip, borderline for spine. I'll go back on tamoxifen, few side effects for me, if he wants, but that's all for now. Any one currently using that for osteopenia?
Dr. Susan Love calls the meds for osteopenia "anti anxiety drugs" :)
