Hi, it would be great to get people's opinions please. My Dexa scan wasn't brilliant, I'm osteopenic, verging on osteoporosis in my spine 😕 My doctor has prescribed Alendronic Acid but I've read such bad reports about this medication I'm really reluctant to start taking it. I have a rich calcium diet and take Adcal daily. I'm 54 by the way and was diagnosed in August last year and put on 20mg, i have managed to reduce to 6mg without too much trouble, no pain just soreness. The only flare I've had was in the very beginning when my doctor told me to reduce by 10mg, hadn't found this site at that point. Have used the dead slow, stop method. Thanks for listening 😀
