Fosomax and Jaw Disease
How long before oral surgery should I stop Fosomax?
Would Actonel have the same connection to jaw disease?
No one knows the answer to your question for certain. I would recommend you stop the medication as soon as you know you are going to have dental surgery. Restart it when you have completely healed from the procedure.
