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.
