    Stopped Actonel for now

    Since I found out that after taking Actonel for 15 months and I went from Osteopenia to Osteoporosis while on it, I am not taking it for now! I haven't taken it for a month now. I do take 1200 mg of Calcium a day with Vitamin D.
    I wanted to see if my constant back pain would subside from not taking the Actonel, and I do think that it is a little better! I read that a side effect of Actonel was back pain!
    Should I call my Dr. and tell him I quit taking it and maybe I should try something else? Does Fosimax or Boniva or ? cause back pain?
