I have terrible joint/muscle pain & back spasms. My legs hurt so much that I've stopped my walking routine. I'm stopping it after taking it for only 1 month. Calling my doc today.

I took Foxamax for years and was very happy with it - now I am on the generic and have had an increase in migraines and also have had leg pain. I am going back to Foxamax!!

I am concerned that this medication is causing my rapid heartbeat. I see others are experiencing this as well and I intend to investigate this further.

Comment:
I had been taking Fosamax for many years but now my insurance company will not pay for it so I had to switch to the generic Alendrenate Sodium. Since the day I began using it I have had headaches, the leg pain, and also my heart is racing. After reading the other reviews at this website I am convinced it is this new medication that is the cause of this.
