Fosomax with esophagus problems
What are the potential problems that can occur if you take fosomax when you have esophegeal problems?
Esophageal strictures or swallowing disorders can trap the medication in the esophagus. The bisphosphonates are very harsh on the lining of the esophagus. They can cause ulcerations and serious esophageal bleeding if they linger in the esophagus.
