I was diagnosed with PMR in December 2012. My GP started me on 20mg Prednisolone and am currently on 10mg. Alongside the Pred, I have been prescribed Ranatidine, Adcal -D3 chewable calcium tablets and Alendronic Acid - to be taken once weekly. Today I had my regular 6 monthly dental check-up (the first since since PMR diagnosis). My dentist, learning that I was on Pred and Alendronic Acid, advised me to be aware of "bone problems in the mouth". She also said that should at any time I need a tooth extraction, this would have be undertaken in a hospital environment with antibiotics being prescribed because AA leaves you open to infection in the mouth. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
