I HAVE A VERY STRONG OPINION REGARDING "FOSAMAX". I TOOK FOSAMAX FOR 1 WEEK. I THOUGHT I WAS TOLERATING IT. INITIALLY I EXPERIENCED DIARRHEA, THEN LOOSE STOOLS, UNCONTROLLED FLATUS. ONE EVENING I EXPERIENCED CHEST SYMPTOMS. THOUGHT I WAS HEADING FOR A HEART ATTACK. A RECENT EKG AND ECHOCARDIOGRAM DID NOT SHOW HEART PROBLEMS. I PACKED MY BAG FOR AN EMERGENCY ROOM VISIT. I HELD OFF. I EXPERIENCED 3 HOURS OF TERRIBLE ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX. I REALIZED THE FOSAMAX WAS CAUSING MY PROBLEMS. I STOPPED TAKING FOSAMAX AFTER 1 WEEK. I THEN EXPERIENCED HEARTBURN WAKING ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. I HAD SYMPTOMS FOR WEEKS AFTER STOPPING. I AM ANGRY THAT MERCK WAS APPROVED BY THE FDA FOR MARKETING SUCH A DRUG. BY THE WAY I FOLLOWED ALL INSTRUCTIONS IN TAKING FOSAMAX. FOR ME FOSAMAX IS A POISON AND I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT REMOVED OFF THE MARKET.
