Thanks to all of you for sharing. I have been experiencing extreme fatigue for the last week or so--could sleep most of a 24 hour period. I attributed it to my exercise program. Also, I woke one morning with one totally red eye, as though I had broken a blood vessel. My eyes sting and feel grainy all the time. I have taken Fosamax for three months. Searching the web I could find no clues until I found you. I'm ditching that stuff! : : : : Just to keep you informed that Dad has stopped Fosomax since 2 days now - so we will monitor any improvements. Will let you know.

: : : Any improvement in your Dads condition yet? I'm anxious to hear. I still have a slight problem with my right eye, but I hope it will eventually be OK. My energy level has improved and is nearly back to how it was before taking Fosamax.
: : I am very concerned about my Mother-in-law's rapid loss of sight. I attribute it to the use of Fosamax. She also had gastric problems this past year. Any input?

: It seems many people have gastric problems with Fosamax (I didn't) but it's one of the side effects listed in the information leaflet. From reading this web sight, it seems some people have had eyesight promblems with Fosamax. I know that Fosamax had a terrible effect on my eyesight and my whole system in general. For four months my sight deteriorated until I couldn't read or walk outside unaided. Since stopping the Fosamax four weeks ago (without the doctors permission) I am beginning to feel like a new person again, although it will take a little more time for my eyesight to be back to normal, (if it ever does).
: Hopefully your mother-in-law will stop the Fosamax for a while to see if there is any improvement, of course it will not happen overnight, but tell her to be patient. I had wanted improvement immediately because I had felt ill for so long. I'd be interested to hear of her progress. My challenge now will be to get doctors to realise that Fosamax is effecting peoples eyesight.
