User Comments about Actonel
06 Jul 2010 My mother was prescribed Actonel by a visiting locum within 48 hours she experienced a tingling sensation all over her body, followed by horrific pain in all her joints which has continued for another 3 weeks and is ongoing. She is also experiencing night sweats, often having to change her pyjamas twice during the night. She is 72, has diabetes and hypertension. I am appalled that a locum would prescribe this without looking at the rest of her medication and medical condition. She is still incapacitated and we are still waiting for answers. Is there an antidote?

22 Dec 2009 I have not had any problems with it. I have not had any tests done to tell me how it is working, however, I am hoping that when I have my next bone density test, the density will have improved.
