    I hope the Alendronic Acid helps, Joan. I freely admit I refused it as my oesophagus is bad enough without meds that might irritate it. I guess we live in an imperfect world :roll:

    Hi Joan

    Your GP should not really have taken you off SR quite so soon as it has not been decided yet if it will be withdrawn or not. A further meeting is going to be held this month. I suspect it will be though, unfortunately and I am not sure that we, the patients will ever really know the real reason.

    I do hope you get on ok with the AA liquid. I had the tablet form but it did not agree with me.

    Look after yourself,

    I suppose the best thing about this for you, my lovely, is that the AA is in liquid form. I remember that the tabs had to be taken on an empty stomach and I had to sit up for 30 minutes after - is it the same for the liquid? I guess it should be. Good luck with it and I hope it does the trick. DD

    Hi Joan
    Hope it works for you......I remember taking it at the same time as DD.....what a nuisance. First thing in the morning, once a week, sit up straight, no lying down afterwards.
    At least its a liquid and you will cope with that better than tablets
    Love

    Hi Joan

    I believe you drink one entire bottle of the solution followed by at least 30 ml (one sixth of a glass) of plain water. Additional water (plain) may be taken.

    All will be revealed for sure when you receive the medication.

    I hope all goes well for you.

    Love
