RE: Actonel

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.

RE: Actonel

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.

RE: Actonel

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.
