I took my first weekly Alendronic 70mg tablet Saturday morning, and followed closely the instructions about not eating for 30 minutes beforehand and not lying down. Throughout the day, all seemed well. However, from about 9pm onwards, my tummy started to feel queezy, and soon I had to run to the toilet a few times with bouts of diarrhoea. But worse was to follow - during the early hours I was sick like I've never been sick before. Not putting too much detail into it - it was like from the bottom of my boots!! Last time was about 7am Sunday morning. I cannot put it down to anything I'd eaten, as my husband and family had all the same food throughgout the day. I will certainly consult my doctor before the next dose is due, but if this is the side effect I experience - I'll never take one again. Does anyone know of an alternative prescription?? I'm 52 and was prescribed this drug after a bone density scan had shown slight weakening of the bones in my spine.
