My question is about bone medication for osteoporosis and spine fractures

Posted by jeanie

I have been on Evista for over 10 years.  My last bone density test showed spinal fractures and the doctor wants to take me off Evista and put me on Fosomax.  My concerns are the following.  I do not like medication and I am always afraid.  If I were to change medication how to I "withdraw from Evista?"  Will I have a problem and Fosomax is getting bad press about making the bones brittle so I am even more afraid to even start it.


I take vitamin D and Calcium and try to exercise but is there a more wholistic way of dealing with my bone issues.
