I stayed on Premarin thinking it would protect me from osteo but looks like it didnt. I don't like stomach and esophagus problems w/ fosamax and now from what see, reclast has even worse side effects that I can't afford to have. I heard from a friend there's a newer on out that is 1x every 6 mo and that there are virtually no side effects. What's anyone's opinions on any of this. It's very scary since my 91 yr old mom has had osteoporosis since she was in her 80's .
