:rolleyes: Has anyone ever asked and been given a good explanation of WHY they encountered bone and joint pain after taking Fosamax or Actonel and what causes/caused them??

:wave: I've often wondered the same thing about the bone and joint pain some experience with Forteo. Why? What causes it?

Do some research on what actually comprises these potions.
Well, Actonel and Fosamax are bisphosphonates and bisphosphonates slow natural bone death. But that doesn't tell me much.

Forteo is teriparatide, a portion of a synthetic form of the human parathyroid hormone. I can understand the possibility of bone and joint pain side effects of Forteo possibly being due to too much parathyroid hormone.

I must be missing something in what I'm reading or I'm not doing the right searches or using the best search parameters. Can you give me any further clues, Peregrine? OppOnn really respects your opinions.

Fosamax is in the same chemical class (phosphonate) that is used in the lye cleaners that remove soap scum from the bath tub. Dr. John Lee has called it a metabolic poison that kills osteoclasts. Go to the Thyroid Board here and type in Fosamax. There was very good information on a thread there from someone who did extensive research on Fosamax. Sorry, I'm off now so don't have time now to better pinpoint that thread for you.
