Of course the answer to this can only be made by the individual, however other people's experiences and ideas can be very helpful in decision making..
In order to make an informed and balanced decision for myself I am asking if there are any positive comments and outcomes regarding this drug that people are prepared to share? Any independent studies/research that people have found helpful?
I am posting from the UK, am 70, have T scores in the -4.7 region(minus) and a compression fracture of the T11 vertebrae. I have been fit and active all my life and very surprised to be diagnosed with osteoporosis. Because of the activities I undertake, skiing, climbing, mountain walking, my doctor puts me at high risk of further fracture and is recommending Alendronic Acid.
If you put Alendronic Acid in the search box on top right hand corner where it says Search Healthunlocked with a tiny magnifying symbol beside it, you should find lots of individual stories there on various postings. There is a filter for you to use for most relevant/ recent. I regularly use it for various health topics.
I was on alendeonic acid for a short time but the side effects were so horrible I only lasted three months. Alandronic acid never again for me.
Thank you for that, have had a good look, not many positives for AA. Just wondering if people are not so inclined to post of things are working well for them?
