Begging on behalf of my son again as one of the GPs (not a good one) wants to put my son on Alendronate. He has no proof that my son has osteoporosis, but wants to give it to him because of long-term side effects of Hydrocortisone. My son had a Dexa scan about 10 years ago, which was good and I feel that another one should be done before anything like this is given. He also wants to give my son Calcium, but his adjusted calcium is 2.52 (2.12 - 2.52), so is right at the top.
I have found a lot of information on Drugs.com as to why he should not have either of these meds and wondered whether anyone has any other information as to why these two meds should not be given to my son.
This GP will be the death of me by worrying me. He has already given dangerous information twice before. Any more and I am going to report him!
