Dear One ~
May I offer further encouragement to contact your physician or P/A about this. Also, if you have a pharmacist that you trust, she/he might be qualified to answer. I've made a habit of having all of my medications filled at the same pharmacy & have tried to build up a relationship with the pharmacists (on my 'better' days). They have become incredible assets as I figure out what to take when & with (or without) what. My physician even trusts them & sometimes refers me to them(!) for some of my pharmaceutical questions. It has been WELL worth the efforts. I do hope someone in your Dr's office/med. profession, will 'step up' and give you the information you need!
grateful for Him who is Rock, Fortress, and Might,

I believe paracetamol is acetominophen, or brand name Tylenol, correct? I take Tylenol and Tramadol concurrently, but my doctor told me I could do so specifically. What you should do is ask your doctor if it is alright for you to do so. I use these medications for pain, though, and have never heard of them being used for osteoporosis, unless it causes you pain. Nothing, no ingredient, in either of these medications have any bone building potential. For that, you would need either a prescription osteoporosis medication, such as Boniva, or an over the counter calcium/vitamin D product. But certainly, please get in touch with your medical doctor to find out the best course of action for yourself. Do not treat your condition on your own without medical guidance.

Am afraid of side effects! What is best for me? Side effects of muscle and bone pain. Is this really necessary?
