  • Must take on an empty stomach, first thing in am, with a full glass of water (only water). Must stay upright (either standing or sitting up) for at least a half hour. May cause esophagus irritation or ulcers. May cause reflux.

  • Caused an ulcer. I had no idea this medication was causing my stomach to feel like it was ripping in half for at least the day after sometimes the second day as well. I could not figure out what was going on or why.

  • I have had 3 breaks since taking this medicine. My orthopedic is very concerned. I had to switch from Actonel ldue to my insurance coverage, but I think it worked better than the Fosamax.
