Common Questions and Answers about Actonel side effects now

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 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 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 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 Am interested to know what/why your doctor is recommending for your treatment now... I'm 62 Fem. with T score -3.5. 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.
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 Thank you for answering me. But I am worring about uterus cancer. Two people I know got uterus cancer. They did it for five years. so now that is why I am concerned,. I was told by two other girls they only did 3 years and that was it and they would not do it for five . one of them are fine it has been 2 years off of tomaxacin. Plus I heard that three years was sufficient.
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.
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 f tn My internest said that he doesn't think it's a good idea to start the Plaquenil and the INH at the exact same time since in case there's side effects, which drug would you blame it on? Also, they're both toxic. I'm now in the middle of taking MRI's of different joints and more blood work from my rheumy. The internest said he wants to wait until all the tests come back and he'll speak with my rhuemy and they will decide what to do about the Plaquenil.
Avatar n tn It has been researched for PMDD. - When you stop bc, some women experience side effects for a few months. This usually stops after your hormones return to normal.
Avatar f tn I want to start by saying that while on depo i had NO side effects, NO irregular bleeding and my period returned within 2 months of not getting my next shot. I was on depo for almost 4 years because i suffer from migraines, and that was the most effective method of control and as a b.c. method as well. (estrogen made my migraines worse) I started having concerns as news came out about depo's long term effects so i was referred to a gyno that sent me to have my bones density tested.
Avatar f tn But if one has had a mastectomy and chemotherapy, and there were zero nodes affected/involved, is there really any benefit to taking Tamoxifen? Right now the side effects are just making me downright cranky (and yes, I am on Effexor) and honestly the body changes courtesy of forced menopause are not helping the attitude any. Can cancer spread even if lymph nodes were negative?
1026267 tn?1257594873 Care should be taken when taking medications for osteoporosis, as there can be adverse side effects and some dental work should not be performed while on it. I have had osteopenia for many years, and my latest bone scan shows that I've actually rebuilt bone, by implementing a regimen of calcium (1200 mg/day, taken twice daily - I take it at noon and 6:00 pm to prevent conflict with my thyroid med), magnesium (200 mg/day, taken at bedtime, moderate exercise.
Avatar f tn Finally at 79, (she's 80 now), they said, no more bone drugs, they aren't working. She started out with Fosamax, and after awhile when side effects start from that one, and Actonel was available, they put her on Actonel and she was on Actonel all the way up until it was stopped at 79. So, I have that in my mind (her being mom and my genes and all), and decided that I want to put off bone drugs as long as I can. If I can reverse this w/o them, than I'm going to.
Avatar f tn I spent six months trying to bring the cholesterol into the normal range - and succeeded (although it's still on the high side - the doc was happy) just by cutting down on dairy foods. When my TSH level was discovered to be 5.83 (I live in France so the levels may be different - normal range is from 0.18 - 3.00) I was then referred to an endocrinologist.
Avatar n tn The drugs never worked and I was miserable with side effects. It was later found out I had extreme PMS, similar symptoms to bi-polar I'm told. I was put into clinicial menopause when I was approx 41 yrs old. I can't remember what it was, it was just a monthly shot in the butt and I had to take progestreon every other month to induce my period, which I hemoraged terribly. This lasted a year and I can't seem to remember anything good about the whole process.
Avatar f tn I refused and did my own research. I have been taking E zorb with no harmful side effects instead for quite some time now. I wanted a multi with as low amount of extra calcium I could get. The only one I could find was Living Green Liquid Gel Multi for women. It has EVERYTHING. And only 50 mg calcium. However, I have to take 3 large tablets a day and it gets rather expensive. Besides, at my age (59) I don't know that I need so much in my multi as my reproductive years are over.
Avatar f tn Anyway, yes I have read the horrible side effects which one of them is definitely hair loss. Well, just the vasculitis alone can cause the hair loss not to mention the cytoxan and prednisone. I am sorry this is happening to you though. It sounds as if you have had vasculitis a very long time and could probably share alot of info with the rest of us who believe we may have it or know that they already have it.
Avatar f tn I have been on it for about 3 months now, but I was also on it for quite awhile a few years ago. I have never had anything but success with it. there are no side effects. I will be on it for another 2 months and my dr plans to take me off of it. I am also on a antibiotic called Cipro that I will be on for at least another 4 months and I have been on it for just about 2 months now.
471161 tn?1317194550 It wasn't until a few years ago that I tried to get off of it and I had bad side effects so I stayed on it. This time my new gyno that I really like put me on a patch and Remar it is Vivelle Dot and it's working very well. I am so upset because 2 1/2 years ago I became ill. I have lupus. I am having a very hard time with it as it has attacked my heart and then my lungs in the short 2 1/2 years I have had it.
Avatar n tn I have been getting by on an anti-depressant called Serzone (helps with the pain in the nerve endings and has no side effects on me at all) and Cellebrex for the last year. I am trying to decide what to do next tongiht because my Rheumy said a few things that upset me today so I don't know if I am going to take the Plaqunel or find a new doctor first. The only thing you have to do is get your eyes checked before you start taking it and have them checked about once a year. God Bless ...
