FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Cure Worse Than Disease?

Following my car crash in September, my doctor had me take a bone density test. Result: at age 70, I don't have osteoporosis, but I am just a tad lower than normal on density.

What works against me is that I've been on corticosteroid inhalers for years to treat my asthma, and these tend to sap bone density.

Like a lot of MD's his first instinct is to go to the medicine cabinet. He wants me take a biphosphonate, which has a Rolodex of side effects, including, ironically enough, possible bone fractures.

Anyone else taking a biphosphonate for bone density? Any issues crop up?
