Post Fosamax and/or Actonel, too?

I've learned that Entex(for congestion) seems to set
you up for more reflux. Protonix(for me, anyway)
retains fluid somewhat, but I can take it less when
I don't need decongesting.

Now my GYN wants me to take Actonel for bone-building.
Osteoporesis threatens!
According to the Actonel package:

"Actonel may cause:
Pain or trouble swallowing.
Ulcers in stomach and esophagus"

"Stop taking Actonel and tell your health care
provider if:

swallowing is difficult or painful
you have chest pain
you have very bad heartburn or it doesn't get better"

Word for word from the package! Puhleeze!
What are doctors thinking! Why would I take it?

Going to look up Fosamax, and check the boards
for Osteoporosis, but....any women here have
any experience with either or both?

Medical insanity!
