Fosamax Atrial Fibrillation Side Effects

Fosamax Atrial Fibrillation Side Effect Reports


The following Fosamax Atrial Fibrillation side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Atrial Fibrillation, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Fosamax or it might take time to develop.



Transient Ischaemic Attack, Cerebrovascular Accident, Bone Density Decreased, Spinal Pain, Skin Burning Sensation, Weight Decreased, Atrial Fibrillation, Pain In Extremity, Musculoskeletal Pain

This Atrial Fibrillation side effect was reported by a health professional from US. A 80-year-old female patient (weight:NA) experienced the following symptoms/conditions: blood cholesterol increased.

  • Transient Ischaemic Attack
  • Cerebrovascular Accident
  • Bone Density Decreased
  • Spinal Pain
  • Skin Burning Sensation
  • Weight Decreased
  • Atrial Fibrillation
  • Pain In Extremity

Fosamax Atrial Fibrillation Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the speed or rhythm of the heartbeat. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of arrhythmia. The cause is a disorder in the heart's electrical system.

Often, people who have AF may not even feel symptoms. But you may feel

  • Palpitations -- an abnormal rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness or difficulty exercising
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion

AF can lead to an increased risk of stroke. In many patients, it can also cause chest pain, heart attack, or heart failure.

Doctors diagnose AF using family and medical history, a physical exam, and a test called an electrocardiogram (EKG), which looks at the electrical waves your heart makes. Treatments include medicines and procedures to restore normal rhythm.

Fosamax Atrial Fibrillation Reviews

Thu, 18 Aug 2011

I have had gastric bypas and would like to know if I can take Fosamax.

Sun, 26 Jul 2009
I took Actonel for 2 months and the psorasis in my scalp got out of control. My Doctor could find no connection. I have been on Fosamax for one month now and the same thing is happening. Have there been other reports of this side effect?
Fri, 10 Oct 2008
After being on Fosamax for approximately four and one half years suddenly I developed severe medial bilateral knee pain. Have pain when walking down and up stairs. I have NO history of arthritis, no inflammation or redness at the location of pain. I stopped taking the medication three months after experiencing these symptoms in Jan o8 and still suffer these effects 10 months later. I took this medication post menopausely prophylactically a 35mg weekly dose to prevent bone loss. I understand Fosamax has a half life of 10 years. Does the pain eventually go away or is this permanent damage?
Wed, 06 May 2009
Can Fosamax cause a drop in blood pressure? Can it worsen pre-existing anaemia. I've taken 4 weekly 70mg tablets and am feeling dizzy and week with loss of sensation in my fingers and joint pains. As I have suffered a year ago from kidney failure and tubulointerstitial nephritis I am concerned that I may go back into kidney failure due to the Fosamax.
Mon, 23 Nov 2009
I have been using Fosamax for years for osteopenia. I have good teeth with1 root canal. I am wooried about it affecting my teeth. Is taking it a major risk for teeth? Is there a better way to prevent bone loss? I am 64, good health and use weight trainig( 5'4" white )
Tue, 20 Jul 2010
I started generic Fosamax 10 days ago . After my first dose( sunday) I was fine , but the day after (Monday) in the afternoon I experienced crushing pain in my upper spine that radiated to the front. I had severe difficulty rising from a lying position , severe pain.
