Extreme stiffness and pain in hip and spine if sedentary for more than 1 hour. Getting out of bed in the morning was agony. Movement reduces symptoms. No longer taking. Side effects outweighs benefit.

I was recently diagnosed with a fracture of my femur. My dr. says this is a little advertised side effect of taking fosamax for over 5 years!! PLEASE be aware that in some women it can have this effect only in the femur. It is NOT in any Merck literature but in Europe drs. require their patients to stop it after 5 years!! Be advised.

Sporadic mild leg pain for about a week after first starting. No further problems with this drug. Causes heartburn if not enough water taken with it though.

After using bisphosphonates for 12 yrs. two months ago I have 2 teeth extracted & the pathology report said those areas had osteonecrosis (bone death) plus bacteria. It does not show up in dental x-rays so be sure you have a biological type dentist. Do not take Fosamax is my recommendation.
