    I am healthy I take good care of myself. I know my body inside out. I have the first stage of bone lost. I am on Alenderonate I have been on it for 6 weeks. I got a very bad dizzy spell it has continued. I called my Dr and told her I will not be on this medication no longer. She put me on another medication I will pick it up today don't know what kind. If I will have side effects from this prescription I will not take it or any other prescription drug. I don't not take any prescription drugs very rare over the counter. I will not take the prescriptions drug. Because all they do more damage than good. I am a pharmacy technician and I know about all the side effect they carry. I take care of myself and the prescription drugs just cause more damage than good. I take a vitamin D already and I will start taking calium on my own.

    Have been on Alendronate for 10 months. Have gained 20 pounds.
    Impossible to lose the weight, it seems to make no difference how much I exercise or what I eat.
    Have NEVER had an issue with my weight.
    Also have:
    1. Very cold hands and feet
    2. Hair loss - I've been horrified how much I've lost
    3. Memory issue
    ALL these started shortly after starting taking Alendronate for bone density.
    NO one seems to be able to tell me if the weight will come off once stop taking Alendronate.

    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?
