Comment:
I found this very easy to take right after breakfast, unlike Actonel. I have taken it for several years and had no side effects whatsoever . In most of the affected areas it seemed to keep osteopenia as is but in some areas it worsened to osteoporosis so it is time to switch to an injectable . It did not improve condition but kept it from getting worse in most places.

I took Forteo to build up my bones and Atelvia to secure the gain (15%). It has been very effective over 3 years. I am 84 years old.

I am on my 4th week of use. On the first and second week, I only felt slight headache. But on the third and fourth week, I felt very sick and severe, continually stomach pain. I have to stop it. Does any one know other options to treat the Osteoporosis? Appreciate if some one can share with me. Thanks.

Horrible intestinal cramps that don't go away for weeks! Had to get an antispasm drug. Terrible diahrea as well! I am never going to take this again!
