Generic for Fosomax
This is a warning for any of you that are older and perhaps will be prescribed medication you didn’t know you needed. Such is the case with me. Until I became old enough for Medicare about three months ago, I didn’t know I had osteoporosis in my back. They discovered this in a Dexa scan (a bone density test). This test is among many you get free as a welcome and wellness visit when you sign up for Medicare.
This innocent test was only the beginning of the horrors to come. Things haven’t been the same for me since getting on a prescription that’s supposed to grow stronger bones. I’ve felt like I’ve aged at least twenty years. I’ve been achy and nauseated and that’s disrupted my sleeping and eating. If I can get any food down, I get severe heartburn so I’ve stocked up on antacids and some ginger ale, which is very good for nausea. I hate to drink so much soda and haven’t since this was my go-to drink for the hot flashes some years ago. My hands are so cramped these days. I can’t even pick up a glass of water. It’s ridiculous to find myself in such a circumstance.
My doctor and I had quite a discussion about all of this with him assuring me things will get better. I’m beyond taking anymore of this medicine because I can’t function and I let him know in so many words. I’m certain there’s something in there that’s disagreeing with me and I’m not touching it with a ten-foot pole. The jury is still out as to what will be the substitute now. At this point, I’m ready to take my chances with breaking a bone.
Generic for Fosomax - Beware if your doctor ever wants to give you this
Logic tells me that I’ve had this condition for some time and I’ve fallen many a time onto the rocks in the backyard, or the patio, and never hurt myself. This usually happens every winter around here when the weather is beyond horrible and plants have to be taken care of when a strong north wind is blowing.
There’s no doctor on the planet that’s going to give me a guarantee of not having a reaction to something. I’m certainly old enough to know that. I think I’ll be looking around and researching for natural alternatives. If I find anything, I’ll let you know, for anyone wishing to do the same.
