Prolia treatment for osteoporosis
That is one of my concerns. I went on Fosamax briefly many years ago, and subsequently learned there were severe side effects, and fractures in other areas. Sigh…what to do???

I stopped taking Fosamax a few years ago after being on it and off it for about five years. The bone aches/cramps, and stomach distress were on-going throughout the time I took it. When media started reporting what research was finding out about Fosamax and other drugs to treat osteoporosis, I stopped taking it. My doctor recommends I try another drug in this class, but until the safety and long-term effectiveness of a drug can be better assured – I will not be taking any of them. I feel 100% better since stopping Fosamax.
