    I was started on Fosamax 5 weeks ago, and have had significant joint and muscle pain ever since. So bad, in fact, that I have stopped going to the gym altogether. Unfortunately, I just related this pain to this drug AFTER I took a dose this morning. I don't think the benefits could possibly outweigh these side effects. Thanks for your input.

    I am pre-diabetic and track my glucose levels to help control my blood sugars with diet. I am noting that my blood sugars are up 20 points after the weekly pill, and up about 5 points from my usual fasting glucose level the day after. I am wondering if moving from the pill to an infused medication will avoid the increased blood glucose?

    I noticed an increase in my blood pressure shortly after starting on Alendronate Sodium, but it only lasted a day or so. But the longer I take it (over a year now) the longer the effect lasted and now I have high blood pressure most of the time. I'm a female over 60. I started with an average bp of 115/70 and now am having readings of 148/90.
