: : I have read many messages posted here on the subject of fosomax. Everybody seems to have one problem or the other with it. I haven't found a single posting that is positive on fosomax. I am taking it myself for over a year without pronounced adverse side effects but without any clear benefits either. I wonder if ther's anyone on this list who clearly benefited from taking fosomax and what is his/her dosage?

: Hi, this is is Susan from South Africa. My mother has been on Fosamax - dosage 10 mg once a day, i.e. 70 mg a week. She attended a seminar in Zimbabwe recently where she was told that the LATEST information regarding dosage is that the same results are attained by taking 20 mg twice a week, i.e. just 40 mg a week. She is very anxious about trusting this information as she has had two bad fractures in the past and has had excellent bone density results on the Fosamax. Does anyone have any info for me regarding the most up-to-date dosage recommendations?? Thanks.

Hey I'm Pam and am 18 years old. Two years ago I was diagnosed woth osteo. I have been on fosomax for the past 2 years. I do the same thing your mother does, I take 10mg a day. Recently when I saw my doctor, she informed me that tests are showing that a 70mg dosage administered once a week is as effective as the 10mg a day. I am very excited about this and I hope that we all can benefit from it. :) Pam
