... Shortly after starting Actonel I realized I could not stand up for very long before having to sit down and rest my feet. Did not make the connection to Actonel at the time. About the same time the side effects and allergic reactions took me down big time, my feet were in severe pain, difficult to use at all. ... (2 replies)

... It's now a year later, and this is a quick update. I've been taking one Actonel every other week (instead of the prescribed once weekly), with no side effects, and I hope that this plan provides enough of it to keep my bones strong. At my next annual checkup this fall, my doctor will probably order a bone scan, so I will see then if I'm on the right track. I'm hoping this... (8 replies)

... Hi Osteo: There was just a couple of things I wanted to run past you, and that's did you ever get to read that Medscape article on bonemarkers I posted ages ago?

She emailed me a... (1 replies)

Sooo....just... (2 replies)
... My husband developed "plantar fasciitis" twice over the years working at his job which often entailed hours and days standing on or climbing metal rung ladders. His podiatrist wasn't one to jump on the cortisone bandwagon. Instead he pasted or glued the bottom of my husband's feet. It only lasts 3-4 days before it loosens but in just 2-3 days my husband had complete relief.... (2 replies)

... Thanks Bitsy for responding w/your Dr. appt update. Thanks so much for asking re: weight gain/hair loss. Now, what is the cause of this hair loss? Others have reported it while taking Fosamax & Actonel?????My Rhumo also said it was not the drug.
