    No side effects! I am very sensitive to any medications and must take all in smaller doses than most w/ elevated results. This medication shows no signs of use whatsoever, but, I feel stronger while using it. My bones do not creek as much after 2 weeks of use; I am very happy with this drug; no stomach upset w/ or w/o food.

    Had diagnosis of osteopenia and osteoporosis. I have IBS and Actonel and Fosamax gave me severe constipation requiring enemas. I was switched to Evista and have had no side effects.
