fosamax and weight gain
Hi, I'm on the upper end of the 40's ... 48. I'm menopausal, though I have some bleeding sometimes, but not much. My gyn says that this is typical. May 07, I had a D&C and had a polyp removed.
About 9 months ago, I had a bone scan. My tscore: -1.49 - osteopenia. Many sources suggested that no meds were needed, but my gyn highly recommended Fosamax. I was really hesitant to take it. I've been taking Fosamax without any problems, except ...
I've been gaining weight since taking Fosamax which is a scary thing for me after losing 70 lbs. I've gained 10 lbs, most of which has been since taking Fosamax.
I don't think I'm looking for excuses, but may I am. Can Fosamax promote weight gain? I've been holding for 3 weeks now which is good,but I really need to go back down at least 5 lbs.
