Osteoporosis

Arthritis and Actenol

Question:

I am taking once a week Actenol, and I would like to know if there are any bad side effects first off with this, and if it effects good or bad arthritis. My finger is severly inflamed and flares up and swells very bad, but I have not taken Actenol in about 8 weeks now. Just wondering.

Answer:

It is not common for bisphosphonates to aggravate arthritis.
