I suffer from Polymialgia R and have been for a year now. My doctor put me on Prednisolone steroids and Alendronic Acid, but, I heard such negative things about the latter that I decided to give them a miss as I was only expecting to be taking the Preds. for a year, and thought that a high intake of calcium and vitamin D would do the business.
The doctor now tells me I will be on steroids for at least another year and possibly a lot longer.
Should I start taking Alendronic Acid or is there a better option, or at least one with less drastic side effects? I'm a sixty five year old male who has several Auto Immune Problems who until the onset of PMR considered myself fairly actve.
