... I am not sure about actonel, but I can tell you that my experience with BOTH Boniva and Fosamax was joint pain. ... (18 replies)
... Well, of course, one can't say ''definitely'' that the Actonel was to blame. But, there is probably a good chance that Actonel did have something to do with it. ... (16 replies)
... Thanks for responding montesflus. I knew it had to be the Fosamax because I've been the same weight for 24 yrs!! ... (5 replies)

... And yes, it has been reported that Fosamax CAN remain for up to 10 yrs, or thereabouts, in your system, even after stopping it. ... (5 replies)

... I agree with taape on the Forteo, I'm wondering why the doc put you on oral boniva with your malabsortion problems and surgery. You did mean you are on the once monthly oral boniva, correct, or am I wrong? ... (15 replies)

... I dont know why she (my Rheumatologist) put me on it to begin with and yes, the dose is 1 pill per month This is good to know. I am under the care of a Rheumatologist and have just begun seeing a Gastrologist both of which my PCP (internist) referred me to. eeep, injection :eek: (15 replies)
... Hi TrinityRose welcome... I agree with you on the good and the bad, and have mentioned many times that osteo scares me more than osteonecrosis. I watched my grandmothers and aunts suffer so with this and the C curve in the spine (widows hump), that I just can't let that happen to me, if possible. Oral surgeons have told me though, that they have seen a few cases of... (14 replies)
... Hi Longsfordesert: I'm glad I could help in some small way... One thing I don't remember you mentioning is your t-score; depending on what it is that would have an effect on what med they might prescribe. Since my score didn't improve much from Actonel (-3.6 spine) they switched me to Forteo because that med is reserved for those who can't tolerate Bisphosphonates... (12 replies)
... I was on Actonel for about 8 months or so, had some bone pain initially but that went away after a month or so. ... (4 replies)
... 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)
... Boy you sure can get conflicting info. I was just reading Karin's thread and she's saying a Doctor at the Mayo says you can take Boniva and Strontium at the same time! ... (19 replies)
... Hello, There's an interesting site called ''askapatient''. Here you can read about side effects experienced by people using medications of all different kinds. You just type in the name of the med, and follow on from there. While your about it, you might as well check Boniva, Actonel, Reclast, as well as Fosamax. It'll be an eye-opener, believe me. BTW, I've heard... (10 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. Also, it allows for proper secondary mineralization (which also leads to increases in BMD). Bisphosphonates bring bone... (6 replies)
... Elphers, Bisphosphonates like Actonel, Fosamax, and Boniva, generally don't increase bone density. They sometimes prevent it from getting worse. In your case, other factors may be involved. Are you postmenopausal? If you're within 5 years after menopause, you lose bone at a faster rate. In some cases, people taking these drugs still have fractures. Read the book,... (6 replies)
... Hi Taape: I was just at Stanford's web site and noticed that they have an Endo/Metabolism dept specializing in Osteo, among many other things, at their "Univ Med. Center." I don't know if you would be interested in this or not, but thought I might mention it in case you haven't looked here for a referral. You do have to have a dr refer you, but if your looking for a second... (5 replies)
