I was prescribed Alendronic recently to take in conjunction with steroids. I also take ACDAL (Calcium). I am a whimp when it comes to taking medication. So when reading all possible side-effects, plus the fact that I am allergic to Aspirin (which seems to be a problem with Alendronic), it seems that it may not be suitable for me.
I will see my GP about alternatives, but wondered if anyone here knows if NOT taking this kind of medication is really putting myself at risk of Osteoporisis due to taking steroids long term, and would ACDAL be enough??
