Oh dear!! On Friday went to see my GP as I have now been on pred. For two weeks and as you know it has taken most of my pain away. So he explained I should continue with the 15mg and in the meantime I should now take one tablet a week of alendronic acid etc. Well guess what? I took my first dose yesterday morning and by the afternoon felt bloated and uncomfortable and today have got a painful back!! Not going to take any more. According to leaflet the medication can cause stomach upset and MUSCULAR PAINS!!! A rather pointless medication........going for a bone scan at beginning of Sept. I gather there is an alternative medication. Anyone else had the same experience? Know of the alternatives?
