Osteoporosis Medication Options
Is there an alternative medication to Fosamax (70mg)? It is very expensive. Any Generic? I am a 92 years old woman.
There is only one approved medication like Fosamax and that is Actonel. They are both expensive. Be sure you are getting adequate calcium and 800 IU of vitamin D.
