I am a newbie and have just been diagnosed with osteoporosis (n my neck) and osteopenia in my spine and hip. I have taken my first Alendronic acid (70mg) tablet today. After reading about the side effects I am really concerned about my eye health. I already have an eye disease and understand you can get blurred or loss of vision. When my husband asked my gp about possible side effects she was quite vague and said oh about 1 in a 10,000 get a problem with their jaw and you can get a bit of indigestion. I already have IBS. What are the alternatives? I have doing exercise for years (but not over-exercised) and I eat as healthily as IBS allows me to. But according to my gp if you are very slim and over 50 then you'll probably get osteoporosis.
