Fosamax Bone Disorder Causes and Reviews


Your bones help you move, give you shape and support your body. They are living tissues that rebuild constantly throughout your life. During childhood and your teens, your body adds new bone faster than it removes old bone. After about age 20, you can lose bone faster than you make bone. To have strong bones when you are young, and to prevent bone loss when you are older, you need to get enough calcium, vitamin D, and exercise. You should also avoid smoking and drinking too much alcohol.

Bone diseases can make bones easy to break. Different kinds of bone problems include

  • Low bone density and osteoporosis, which make your bones weak and more likely to break
  • Osteogenesis imperfecta makes your bones brittle
  • Paget's disease of bone makes them weak
  • Bones can also develop cancer and infections
  • Other bone diseases, which are caused by poor nutrition, genetics, or problems with the rate of bone growth or rebuilding

Fosamax Bone Disorder 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
