alendronic acid 75mg tablets

Posted , 8 users are following.

I would like to thank everyone for their reviews on alendronic, they have given me some thought.

I have been given A but not started (thank god). I was diagnosed with Osteopenia and I have Coeliac disease. I was put on prostelos sachets but having difficulty taken them but I think I will stay on them as there are no side effects compared to A.

    I've just found this site.....if anyone is still about.

    I was put on AA when I was diagnosed with osteopinia by a previous doctor.

    When I changed docs she took me off it and said I only need life changes for that.

    Now I've been diagnosed with osteoporosis....I've been put on it again and also on vit d and calcium {mixture} disolvelable tablets

    I found that every time I took the AA I was sick {not physically} just feeling very sick for the rest of the day.

    As far as pains go....well its hard to tell....I've got osteo arthritis in hips, lower spine neck and ankle, I had a 2nd hip replaccement in Jan and  weeks afterthat I fractured my hip doing an NHS exercise

    Thats when they discovered I had ostoporosis. I also have scoliosis.

    So I have pain but I dont know if any of it is related to the AA. I saw a different doctor in the practice and she said come off it and make an appointment with my own doctor and check with her. I've been off it for about 5 weeks now.

    I am much sorer these days but is it the weather {it does affect arthritis LOL}

    Anyway thats my story.....waiting to see GP to see what she has to say

      Busy reading & collating & have just come across what I believe was your first post after finding the site. You had answered a post requesting information about AA 75mg. I must have missed this on my first trawl through. All grist to the mill!
