From this study (2 years ago):
I took Actonel for about 2 yrs. Blood work was done after 1 yr and again after 2 yrs. Within 1 yr the white blood cell count dropped by 0.8 (significant for me).
Also, there was a change in the bone marrow and blood clods developed in one leg.
I am very upset that Dr. recommendet taking it. If I had been informed how bones stay strong naturally, I would never have taken this very bad stuff.
Stopped using, but now won
