This is something I would like answered. End of January 2019 I was diagnosed as having osteoporosis in my lower Bach and osteopena in my hips. I was prescribed Fosamax to help slow this down. I took the first two doses as prescribed. With in days I noticed muscle pain and what felt bone pain. At first I didn't associate this pain with the Fosamax so I continued my dosages. I took the next two doses as prescribed. I was feeling more pain so I took a good look at the paper that accompanied my prescription. I saw the side affects and immediately realised what the pain was from. I have always been a healthy active 64 year old woman. I quit taking the Fosamax on February 23, 2019 and I am still experiencing the bone, joint and muscle pain. I have talked to my doctor and she hasn't been able to say how long it will last or what to take to deal with the pain. Sure hope someone out there has some better answers.
I took Alendronate for 3 months, after I developed a few side affects. I reported to my Doc every 2-3 times a month. The last report was blood in my stool. I stopped taking it immediately. How long will it stay in my system?
Fosamax can cause serious side effects. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any irritation, inflammation, or ulcers, chest pain,bone, joint, or muscle pain.
