I took Fosamax for some time and it didn't seem to do any good although at the time I wasn't told to break up my dosages of Ca. and add D3. Then I was put on 2 yrs of Forteo for the max period . Now I am on Alendronate besdies Strontium and I am debating weather to go off the Alendronate.
I have been having weight gain as well as more hot flashes which I think seems to be some of the side effects. I just realized that after all this time.
Of course there s also the possibility of the jaw necrosis I know. Is the same as Alendronate? I am guess ing thata it might be.
The more I am hearing the more I am thinking it probably is the best thing to go off. No one seems to know about that taking of both Alendronate while also taking Strontium.. I haven't had any stomach problaems with either Fosamax or Alendronate.
Sorry, I know I have probably thrown in a couple more questions to besisdes the original one.
Any info that any of you might have would be helpful.
