    One of my friends ended up in the ER, believing she was having a heart attack. Turned out to be Fosamax. She has permanent esophageal damage.

    Another elderly friend had jaw necrosis twice, requiring major dental work and treatment. From Fosamax. Her prescribing doctor claimed it wasn't caused by the Fosamax.

    Her daughter was on Fosamax, walking her dog, dog pulled on leash, her wrist broke. Her prescribing doctor also told her it was not caused by Fosamax.

    Jon's ICU intensivist years ago agreed that Fosamax (and it's other forms) is dangerous and that I was wise not to put him on it.

    There are other ways to strengthen our bones. This poison isn't the answer.

    Well, I'm convinced...was, just after reading their own literature. And now have convinced Tom Cat to go off it, too.

    Yes, Agate, it was the heartburn. Severe enough for me to go to the ER.

    I did have minor jaw bone pain but didn't associate it with the med.
