35 year old female:My first dose of Actonel Saturday 10/25/08 8:00am. Was afraid to take it after reading the side effects, with good reason.

Comment:
I took my first 150 mg. monthly pill and within several hours had pain in my bones. Several hours later severe pain from my waist to my neck. Worst pain than having a child. I have went three days with chills, barely able to move around, and have nearly passed out several times. Have been told it must be the flu. I don't think so, I've never had the flu and everyone says it's not l ... Show Full Comment
