Has anyone develop side affects from taking actonel?My leg pains me and I think it's from this drug.I read up on the side affects and it says"side affects don't happen over night"Also today over the radio I heard calcium does not prevent broken bones.My leg hurts me so bad and the doctors can't find anything wrong.I guess I have to use my head.

Calcium DOES prevent broken bones! Osteo porosis is a lack of calcium in your bones....caused by many things.
Take your actonil....the back pain from collapsed vertibrae is many times worse that pain in one leg.

Yes, Actonel was literally poison to my body after only 6 weeks of taking 1 pill per week. The pain in my body, legs, etc. was horrible. Pain did not subside for many months.

Ladies, Thanks for your postings. After 8 weeks on the pill I developed heaviness in my legs and pain in one pinkie, causing me to discontinue the pills. After quitting two weeks ago, the leg heaviness has been followed by excruciating leg & foot cramps while sleeping or awake. Your postings confirm my suspicion that Actonel is indeed the source of my new horrific problem.
