  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Bone density test showing osteoporosis - put on actonel 150mg once per month. After 1 pill 2 days later eye almost completely closed. Sore to pressure on eye but no discharge, swelling. not really red just unable to open eye. Dr, advised cold compress and antihistamines (no allergies). Neither Dr. nor pharmacist think it is related to reaction to actonel. I believe it is.
