For persons who have experienced pain in joints and bones with taking Fosamax, did those symptoms subside when you stopped the drug? How long was it before you returned to normal? Did you have lasting conditions?
Hi,I'm on fossamax or alendronate for osteoarthritis and necrosis of both knees and both hips. Clinical studies over the past ten years have shown absolutely no benefit for necrosis, but some short term benefits for arthritis. I have heard many conflicting reports and there are many group cases going to court in America, but find that specialists tell me that there is nothing else I can take. I'm always in pain, so don't know whether it's because of the drug or whether pain would be worse if I wasn't on it. Sorry can't help you here. I'd rather be off it myself and don't plan to stay on for too long. Hopes this helps, Lisa.
