I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather and progressing well with our common health issue. I recently asked about taking Alendronic Acid and got some good variable advice. I have been on it for just over a year and Like DL have had no major side effects but hate taking it. I decided to stop it 2 weeks ago as I am now only on 2 mgs of Prednisolone and will discuss with my Rheumatologist in 2 weeks
My current concern now is Omeprazole. I have also taken this with the Prednisolone but have recently read that it can weaken your bones and cause fractures so now considering 1. Do I restart the Alendronic Acid or 2. Stop Omeprazole also. I am not on any supplements as my calcium was raised initially but have since been within normal limits.
I have not had a bone scan but will also discuss this at my appointment. Does anyone take Omeprazole or had any problems with it? I have been fine with it but just worried about any effect on my bones without the Alendronic Acid. I am hoping That I can come off both due to low dose of steroids currently.
Sorry if the message is a bit confusing but any thoughts or current experience would be welcomed.
Positive thoughts and good wishes tomyou all
