Would like to know people’s experience using Fosomax.

I was recently prescribed Fosamax which increased muscle pain even taking only 1 70 mg. per week. Not sure increased pain is worth any benefits it may provide. I also have fibromyalgia and TMJ so the jaw pain was even worse. Here to try and learn about bone strengthening medication.

@parus good to hear from you. My girlfriend took Fosamex it will interfer with you bones her jaws hurt her so much she had to go of it but everyone is different it may work for you without problems 😉 .
I took have taken Fosamax several times. In total, I was on it a bit over five years. Both times I had issues with bone and muscle pain/cramps. Following directions and not laying down after taking Fosamax, I still experienced a sore and burning type of sensation for several hours after taking it. Leg and groin pain became bad enough to wake me often at night, and so after reading and hearing the news reports of serious side-effects of this drug, as well as others, I stopped taking it and decided not to take any further osteoporosis drugs until better, safer ones without serious side effects come on the market. I do exercise, eat for bone health, and take vitamin D every day….and I feel "great" since I stopped taking Fosamax over four years ago.
@parus see #cherriann reply to Fosamex
