Common Questions and Answers about Actonel side effects

actonel

Avatar f tn As you probably have read most all these drugs can have the same side effects .... keep in mind that not everyone experiences the same side effects and also not to the same degree. There are also studies that show spontaneous fractures can occur possibly as a result of some of these drugs. I would suggest that you and your Mum discuss this issue in detail with her Oncologist and make a decision based on what you learn there. Regards ....

Avatar n tn These are also not typical side effects of actonel
Avatar n tn hi... according to a research....Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. prolia may cause low calcium levels, especially if you have kidney problems. Take calcium and vitamin D as directed by your doctor. (See also How to Use section.) Your doctor will order calcium blood tests before your first injection and during treatment.
Avatar f tn After about 3 months, was having bad low back pain and pain on the top of both thighs. I then had a left rib fracture of unknown cause. At that time, no side effects like this were published. I did find a small group with similar symptoms but my Doc said it was not the Nexium. I stopped it and within 4 days, the flank and thigh pain were gone. I was later put on Omeprazole, 40 mg 2x a day fir the past few months. Not sure yet, but my low back muscles are killing me.
Avatar n tn Hello. This does not seem to be a side effect of Actonel. It is not documented. But still new side effects may emerge. Do you have any blood pressure issues ? High blood pressure does sometimes produce such symptoms. And if you are around your menopause, the burning of the head may be due to the hormonal imbalance.
Avatar n tn After that, then you may already have no contraindications is using Actonel. All of these drugs and supplements may aid in preventing side effects of aromasin such as that of further lowering of bone mineral density and bone pains.
Avatar f tn I have tried Actonel, Fosamax and Forteo to no avail for my osteoporsis (which is quite severe -4 Dexa). What are your recommendations? Have you knowledge on the NEW Prolia 6 month shot? Side effects? vs. the Reclast, One Yr. IV? I truly appreciate your expertise.
Avatar n tn I am due to have 2 extractions at the same time - one on each side. The dentist wants me to have bone grafts due to the fact that I had taken oral Actonel for one and a half years. However, I have not taken Actonel for 4 months. I believe I am safe enough from future osteonecrosis to just have the extractions without the bone grafts. I am not going to have dental implants. One is the last lower tooth on R side and the other is the next to last tooth on L side. Neither shows when I smile.
Avatar f tn This sounds like an osteoporosis question...... If you have even mild primary hyperpara, w/ this history would consider treating it.
Avatar n tn I am a breast cancer survivor, and have been through chemo, radiation, and am now on hormone therapy, taking Femara(my age is 69).Could you tell me some of the side effects of femara--what to worry about and what not to worry about? I don't want to be calling my oncologist all the time with questions. Thank you! I am also lately taking Actonel for osteoporosis and wonder if there are any interactions i should be concerned about.
Avatar m tn My mother, who is in her late seventies, has recently suffered several incidents of bleeding from her sinus, and most recently from a nostril. On one occasion she lost nearly 2 pints of blood. She had a CT scan which revealed nothing. There has been a few attempts at cauterizing the bleeding areas, however the problem is recurring. The first incident occurred approximately six months ago.
Avatar f tn Hello, Alendronate causes reduction in bone loss, increases bone density and reduces the risk of spine, hip and other broken bones to a large extent in most of the people taking this drug. The few side effects of this medicine are nausea, heartburn; osteonecrosis of jaw bone .There have also been few reports of unusual fractures of the thigh bone in people taking bisphosphonate medicines. You definitely need to inform your doctor about this pain and get the cause detected. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I heard that medication for Osteoporosis causes bad side effects like you mentioned what is happening with her. I don't know of any other medication she can take that won't cause the side effects. Has she seen the doctor for the jaw and teeth pain and to see what else the doctor would recommend? She shouldn't suffer from side effects - that must be horrible for her.

Avatar f tn I am 71, just completed 2 years of Forteo injections with minor side effects and great results. Now my Dr. wants me to do either reclast or Evista. Being celiac sprue I have a very sensitive body- could not handle any Actonel or such. All I have read is bad stuff and do not know what to do. I would like to hear from other Celiac Sprue people who have used either the evista or recast.
Avatar f tn Because of my GERD, my doctor prescribed an IV infusion of Reclast. Unfortunately, I suffered some of the side effects, fever, and severe bone pain to the point of not being able to take in a full breath. My doctor was so concerned he put me on a steroid dose pack to reduce the reaction. My body doesn't seem very tolerant of any drugs, couldn't take anything other than extra strength Tylenol for a foot surgery. I will have to figure out something else with an endocronologist?
Avatar n tn My doctor is putting me on Actonel but I am reluctant to start. Side effects are very worrisome... not sure what to do. I have started mega doses of supplements and calcium and D and excercise and I want someone to tell me that that has worked for them. Most comments I get is to take the drug because it's more effective. I can't believe everyone is taking bisphosphonates or other drugs like that. Please let me hear from you if you see this!,,, Thanks, and hope you are doing well!
Avatar n tn As you have implied, however, aromatase inhibitors can have side effects such as joint aches and pains as well as bone density loss. It should be noted that the anti-osteoporosis drug Evista is chemically similar to tamoxifen and it is not recommended that either tamoxifen or Evista be used in combination with an aromatase inhibitor as they may interfere with its activity. This is not true for bisphosphonates such as Actonel, which appear to be safe in this setting.
Avatar n tn I have recently experienced episodes (lasting hours over several days) of rapid heatbeat which I can feel and which are disquieting, but which are out of proprotion to any anxiety (if any) that I am emotionally feeling. I am a 60 yo female, 115 lbs, 5'3" in good health, taking Actonel for osteoporosis. No other meds. I am physically active, swim half mile twice a week, walk 2-3 miles 3 times a week and work out with weights 3 days a week.
Avatar n tn I hear that 3 years is alright to do I am afraid of staying on because of the side effects. I can not go on other Aramedix and I can not take bone bills because my nevrves on my feet hurt. Do you know anyone that just did 3 years of it and they did fine.
1139187 tn?1355710247 I'll let you know the results when I get them. I am also taking Actonel 150mg monthly for the osteoporosis. As far as side effects, I have not experienced any in any form. Everything appears all right down below. If I recall, I was on 2 actuations per day for about 6 months and then had a t-level taken which dictated increasing the dose to 3 actuations. In another 6 months, the same story, so I was increased to 4 actuations.
Avatar n tn hi...I have the same disease as your mom, I have had cortisone shot for hips and another in sept. the first one did help immensley however the effects were short term. It was also recommended I have a 'nerve block' for the spine however I haven't proceeded to this as of yet(leave for last resort) You can get tons of info at this site www.spine-health.
Avatar m tn My wife is a 65 year old in good health who has taken FOSAMAX for 5 1/2 years. She wants to get her teeth straightened. The periodontist has recommended a procedure to reinforce the gums prior to the braces. This has added an additional 6K to the price and about 3 months to the total time to straighten the teeth.
Avatar n tn Tina, I can't help you with the question of if you get osteo effects from treatment, but I can tell you that I am on Actonel along with doing treatment. I developed osteoperosis at 42 years old and before treatment. I think that based on my experience, I would say that osteo effects (I also have osteoarthritis) may come from the hcv, not the treatment for hcv. That would just be my guess.
Avatar f tn http://saveourbones.com/free-chapter.html It has free detailed information about these meds. In my years of helping women like you fight and conquer osteoporosis without taking toxic drugs I found that even women without Gastroparesis have stomach trouble taking those prescriptions. Believe it or not, in my research I found that bone loss is due to the body trying to correct an imbalance of the body's pH. The good news is that it's easy to correct without any major effort.
Nicelady Hello & SO sorry for your discomfort. I suffered terribly from hotflashes-to the point of it ruining my life! I tried hormone replacement therapy & everything from black cohosh...to anything else you can imagine. I finally found a total help in the oddest place LOL. A friend sent me to a psychic, because she felt so bad for the decline in my life! Anyway, this psychic recommended taking turmeric powder- 1/5 of a teaspoon 3 times a week. I thought, what the heck?
