... According to various articles I've read about the bisphosphate class of drugs (actonel, fosamax, boniva) - they all have what's knows as a ''half-life''. I believe that this means the side effects can stay on in the body for many years, even after stopping. Of course, this varies from person to person, and some, very lucky people, have NO side effects, although it seems that... (4 replies)

... ever for me the bone pain went away within several days of stopping it, the stomach probs didn't, but I have other things causing that, so I can't say it was the Actonel alone that did it. ... (1 replies)

... This is incorrect information. Bisphosphonates do increase BMD. They do this by reducing bone resorption by preventing the osteoclasts from resorbing to much bone (so the 'pits' are not so numerous nor so deep). The osteoblasts then are lay down new bone.

... Yes, the only injectable/infusable I know of for osteoporosis that starts w/an "A" is Aredia (pamidronate). But I don't think it is given monthly, and I don't think it is given by injection. To my knowledge it is infused via IV over about a 2 hour period every 3-6 months depending, I believe, on the size of the dose. Aredia is a bisphosphonate, as are Actonel, Fosamax,... (12 replies)
