... And, I have also read another article that talked about Actonel having fewer gi upset issues than fosamax. A number of people on this board are also using strontium which you may find interesting as well. ... (13 replies)

... Hello, 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. If you take a look at a very well-read site called ''askapatient'', you will find how many people describe their side effects from bisphosphonate meds - Actonel, Fosamax, Boniva. All you have to do is... (16 replies)
... Thanks for explaining the meaning of a 'trust area', I was wondering what that meant when I posted excerpts from the article on the UK wanting to limit access to osteoporosis drugs. It's a shame that you can't have a follow up bone density for your peace of mind, and it would also save you money if your scan showed improved density so you would not have to purchase additional...

... ld have some idea whether the treatment is working or not but was told I couldn't have one and that even if I did have one the result would make no difference as Fosamax is the best treatment and I wouldn't be offered anything else anyway!!!! ... (5 replies)
... To answer your question, I don't thinks such a thing exists. There is Strontium Citrate which isn't an rx, it's otc, like Phyllis mentioned, but as far as rx meds go I don't think you'll ever find one that doesn't have a warning on it. ... (10 replies)

... ther me. I have been to 3 endos. The first said I am going to be dust, the 2nd said I should be allergy tested for Zometa and the 3rd gave me samples of liquid Fosamax and said if I can't take it she will give me Pamidronate IV every 3 months. ... (7 replies)
... While it may sound counterintuitive, "natural" and "safe" are not interchangeable. Assuming your hormone replacement therapy is estrogen-based, there have been several studies showing estrogen +/- progesterone is helpful in relation to bone density, but carries significant risks. These risks include increased breast and ovarian cancer, increased risk of blood clots and stroke,... (3 replies)

Bone meds.

... Well, if I had to take bone meds, I'd opt for strontium ranelate (a straightforward calcium analogue). I'd have little confidence in bone meds restoring useful density but hopefully they would slow or stop loss of calcium. Fosamax for sure, is not suitable to people much over age seventy (my mom was in her eighties and developed cracks in her femurs while on it). No... (8 replies)

... whatsoever. I refuse to have anything to do with bisphosphonates, having permanently eroded out my esophagus my first trial of Fosamax. I am one of many fans of strontium on this board and would suggest you look further into supplementing with that in addition to whatever program you adopt. Good luck! ... (14 replies)
