Fosamax Depression 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
