Unhappy fosamax or protelos(strontium renalate)

Hi there, I am a 55 year old male. I have just had a dexa scan and was diagnosed with osteoporosis. My gp has recommended fosamax, however the osteoporosis society recommends protelos (strontium renelate). While researching these I was struck by the horrific side effects in both. My main concern is whether these treatments, in slowing down the loss of old bone are in fact leading new bone being built on already brittle bones and thus in the long term leading to further problems later on. I really am at a crossroads. I have prescriptions now for fosamax or protelos but wonder should I just hold off ?
