Hypertension and headaches

08/20/2007

Question:

Hi all, Has there been any reported side effects to Actonel concerning hypertension or headaches?

Answer:

Both headache and hypertension have been reported with Actonel.  However, during the early clinical trials, the incidence for both of these side effects were similar between placebo and active drug.

It is always possible that an individual patient experiences a side effect, even if rare.
