does fosamax cause weight gain

I have gained 15lbs and couldn't understand why. Now I have the answer. I have to have root surgery and my dentist said that being on Fosamax is a concern because it causes bleeding. Have you experienced anything like this because of the drug?

Re: does fosamax cause weight gain

Do you mean like denser bones weigh more? I don't know that it causes more fat on the body, I've never heard that.

Your dentist is concerned because Fosamax sometimes causes jaw necrosis or
also it is known as osteonecrosis of the jaw. This causes jaw bone deterioration
which is a concern that dentists have working on anyone on Fosamax.
