Should Calcium Supplements be Taken with Fosamax?

Question:

Should I continue to take calcium tablets, now that I am taking Fosomax?

Answer:

Definitely keep taking calcium, just not at the same time as the Fosamax.  Fosamax needs calcium and vitamin to build bone, so be sure you are getting vitamin D also. 

Let your friends know about this important detail, because it is a common misunderstanding.
