Many options: Depending on your personal presentation, including your DEXA (bone density) scan results, your the frax® score (a tool developed by who to evaluate fracture risk of patients) and your vit d and ca++ levels, there are other meds such as fosamex, actonel, boniva, reclast, (zoledronic acid) to name a few. Osteoporosis treatment is important, so i recommend discussing with a provider who is educated in it. Good luck.

Not much: That is statistically different from placebo, though everything under the sun has been reported it is hard to link it to the drug. The one side effect that is different by about2% is infection, do I would not give it to a compromised person or one who had an acting infection. The debate ove osteonecrosis of the jaw continues on.
