- Fosamax causes numerous problems (1 response)
I took Fosamax for 7 years. In the last two years my bone decreased, where as it had been 28% loss in the spine it went to 31% loss. For the first 5 years it did stop any bone loss but later seemed to stop working. I was very lucky with this drug as others have numerous problems. one lady I know was developing sclerosis of the liver with this drug. There are numerous problems people can have.
- Pain in the neck and arthritis after taking generic fosamax
I started taking Generic Fosamax about six months ago and last week i had a terrible neck pain and spasm. I went to my accupunturist and he did accupunture and massage, but the pain did not go away. Later that week, I noticed that I had a lot of pain every time I flexed my left knee, and later that same day it started to sweell, like in people who have rheumatoid arthritis. I took my last dose of Generic Fosamax last Fryday, and I am wondering if it is the cause of my ailments. I am a healthy person, I exercise regularly and always eat healthy. I wwent again to my accupunturist yesterday and he ordered an Xray of my knee. I would like to know if somebody has had my problems while taking Fosamax and how they got cured. Excuse my English, it is not my main language. Thank you.

Ann on Oct, 18, 2012:
70 year old female, in FL, have taken fosamax for several years until it was making me sick, then switched to Actonel and stomach problems prompted me to switch to Boniva. Not sure if that is my problem but the less I eat the less I hurt, am down to eating pureed veg soup, protein & nutritional shakes, baby food, yogurt, applesauce, pudding, bananas, pureed veg soup, etc. After reading this will stop the Bonivia. I have very intense pain if I eat any solid food. It is the pits, quality of life has been reduced drastically. Diag: gastroparesis
