: : : : Joan,
: : : : Could you help me? Malaysia does not have a Med science lib - for me to order the said article, so could you find out how it would cost for you to order the said article, and let meknow - so I cna pay you - if you could get it for me?
: : : : Let me know. Thanks.

: : : Hi Elizabeth,
: : : I also tried to get the information off the internet, but no luck. I am now living in the U.S.(just moved from Canada) so will try and get the article. We can correspond by email. My address is remihoule@aol.com I am trying to compile information from people who have had vision problems with Fosamax so that we can eventually get more research done and get Merck. to have this side effect listed on their information leaflet. There maybe many more people out there suffering from vision problems who do not connect it to Fosamax. Joan H.

: : : Maureen, if you read this contact me by email.

: : Joan: I have been taking fosamax for about 3 years and I was recently diganosed with an eye stroke, and have been losing vision in my eye. I also take eye drops for glaucoma. When you stopped taking fosamax did the sight come back? Edna

: Hi Edna. Yes my eyesight came back perfect, except one eye gets a bit tired by late evening. I'm also feeling fine although it has taken a few months to get back to normal since stopping the Fosamax. Let me know if things improve for you. Joan

Joan,
I have been on Fosamax for about six weeks. I am having such poor vision, but I just thought it was a function of age. What made you think it was the drug? Also are/were your very tired?
Rita
