Comment:
My mother who was taking this medication for 3 months passed away. She had a sudden enlarged vestibular tumor and an enlarged thyroid, causing her to have difficulty swallowing. She then developed aspiration pneumonia. She was admitted to the hospital on December 20, 2007 and passed away on January 11, 2008.

Comment:
Just started taking this Jan 08, Have already broken a hip (10/07)and can not take the oral meds. I am a nurse and did the research on the drug, it is easy to inject and have had no side effects but the bone scan in Dec. 08 will tell the tale. On Xray my bones are quite thin and you can see through them.
