... Shamrock, Ostopenia is not a disease and in my opinion you should not have been medicated. They tried to get me started on bisphosphonates and I refused. I no longer do their DEXA scans or any other routine diagnostic tests. They are a means to further medicate us and keep the pharma profits rolling. I don't think we're any healthier than the previous generation, probably... (11 replies)
... Winston, I am glad this is a drug that works for you. Of course not all respond the same way to a medication. I came here to find answers I could not get from my Dr. who thought this old nurse was just over reacting. Thanks for your input. (11 replies)
... Everyone doesn't get side effects from Actonel. I have been on Actonel for 6 years and havn't had any. (11 replies)

... hi Shamrock54 bisphosphonates work by preventing additional bone loss this makes them look denser (not stronger) on the dexa machine but bisphosphonates also prevent the creation of new bone and one of the many side effects of bisphosphonates is 'osteonecrosis' which literally means bone death since without new bone being made old bone dies I believe this side effect takes...

... SHAMROCK54 : I'm not allowed to mention specific websites. Just do a search within any search engine using ''side effects of bisphosphonates''. Yours were among some of the side effects mentioned, along with a ''sin fin'' of others. Bisphosphonates are known to stay in one's system years after stopping, especially Fosamax. Do your research and I hope you will reach... (11 replies)
... I haven't taken Actonel but I did take Fosamax. I didn't notice any bone pain or flu like symptoms but as the first pill went down and hit my digestive tract it was burning. i took two more 7 day pills and then quit. I'm staying away from bisphosphonates for treatment, there's too many side effects. At least the bone pain went away. From what I've read here some patients... (11 replies)
... Good gosh, it sounds like the cure is worse than the disease! Have you been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia? I wouldn't take any of those meds and if you do your research, you won't either! Be very careful when you go to the doctor. It seems all they want to do is give us a pill and then another pill to treat the effects of the first. Hope you're feeling better. (11 replies)
... I am new to the group so let me introduce myself. I am a 66 y/0 retired nurse who is finding herself at the mercy of a lot of new drs. for a variety of disorders. I am currently under the care of an internist, GYN, surgeon and urologist. So I am always juggling instructions and making sure all know what the other is doing. I recently had a rather strange experience with... (11 replies)

... Hi jjordan, welcome to the board. i had the same problem when taking actenol. I took it for a month or so before the lump in the throat feeling came. I also got very dry eyes. I decided that i didn't want to take that route so i stopped taking it and both the lump feeling and dry eyes went away.

... Nasal sores??? Geez. Who the heck needs that? I wonder if you're getting those what else is the stuff doing.:eek: Sorry...I've never heard of miacalcin. I've only tried Fosamax and quit that after 3 months. I'm very suspect of anything pharmaceutical at this point. (6 replies)
... Hi my doctor has recommend me to take miacalcin? I could not tolorate fosamax and or actenol. Has anyone else use this medication? I was told the only side effect is nasal sores. (6 replies)
... Hi StarSong: I took Actonel for over a year and again when I was taken off of Forteo and I didn't have to wait in between taking the two. I took Actonel and then started Forteo, the next day two different times. So if you are ending the Forteo and going on Actenol, you don't have to wait. Since your Dr wants you to wait on the Actonel for dental reasons, wait till you... (7 replies)
... Hi desertbloom - thanks for the thoughts. I don't know what my doc's plans are yet but I know what mine are: stop Fosomax and fight the osteoporosis (which isn't severe...yet) with diet and weight lifting. I know HYPOcalcemia can paralize you and kill you - but does HYPERcalcemia affect your kidneys? I don't know much about that - I wish you could transfer me some of your... (3 replies)
... The package insert on Actenol say's that it can lower your calcium level, so hopefully your dr is aware of this, and fosamax is the same thing. ... (3 replies)
... Most of you probably already know about the possible bone and joint pain from bisphosphonates, which doesn't effect everyone, but enough for the FDA to put out a warning about it. I had this problem with actonel, and it went away shortly after I stopped taking it. Read below... http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/infopage/bisphosphonates/default.htm (3 replies)
... by now you probably went to that site and now know yes those can be side affects. I took it for 3 months and then one day......NEVER AGAIN. I now use Fortical. Not the number one pick to take but at least I dont have the headaches, pain, and chills (3 replies)
