    I am 64 and after 8 yrs found out it didn't work as I have a compression fracture of the spine. I have always worked out and exercised. Matter of fact I did it at the gym, so now am on Forteo for 2 weeks so we shall see as that is my last hope.

    After taking Fosamax, I feel sick..... nauseous, joint pain, bloating and some joint pain. I stopped taking this drug for several months and the feeling went away. My current doctor put me back on Fosamax citing my weight ( 125 5"4'' and thin) and bone density at -1.7. The sick feeling came back.
