JK, someone on another site I follow (called Prolia Side Effects on FB) mentioned that she is on slow release Actonel. It is a bisphosphonate in pill form and if it gives you any problems at least you can stop taking it. I still think I will have to go with Reclast. Eventhough Actonel is slow-release, still wonder about g.i. side effects. Plan to ask my endocrinologist about during June telephone appointment.
@sue225 Thanks, Sue.
There are so many questions to ask, it's mind-boggling. I sure wish there was some medication that was less problematic. I know some people refuse to take these medications because of the side-effects and try to just use diet to achieve comparable results but I don't think that works, and in my opinion, even though there is some risk, the thought of a hip fracture is much worse.
