Is your med Alendronate and Cholecalciferol? If yes, then the recommended dose of alendronate and cholecalciferol for most people with osteoporosis is 70 mg/5600 IU once weekly. However, the doc may instead recommend a dose with less vitamin D (alendronate and cholecalciferol 70 mg/2800 IU) once weekly.
However, you must seek an second opinion if you seem that the prescribed dose is too high.
Take care, be safe & well, please.
