Reviews for Atelvia to treat Osteoporosis
Review by snobird39 (taken for 1 to 6 months):
I am allergic to Fosamax. My doctor gave me an Atelvia sample to try and I found I had no side effects from this medicine. I credit this to its time-release function.

Review by Katelynn Anne (taken for less than 1 month):
My doctor gave me samples to use while I awaited my insurance to approve. After taking the first dosage in approximately 29 hours I was in the hospital. Side effects for me were extreme bone pain, indigestion. Doctors thought I was having a heart attack.
