Ostopenia from Long term Type 1 and Fosamax


(Anonymous) #1

Through a bone scan I found out that I had mild osteopenia from long term  untreated Type 1. ( See Medscape)  My teeth suddenly stated to fall out!  I was put on Fosamax and took it for seven years before seeing an FDA warning  dated Jan 7, 2008 warning about muscle, joint and bone pain  from taking  Fosamax and other biphosphomates.  My whole body had sharp pains that switched to points all over my body.  It took me over one and a half years to end the misserable suffering after quitting Fosamax.  Has any one had a similar experience?
