    Actonel ad. I love the side effects. They're always worse than whatever the hell it's supposed to treat.

    If you can't sit or stand, does that mean you're floating? Or can only lie flat on your back, in which case...are you physically ABLE to call the doctor?

    When you take Actonel, Fosamax, or Boniva, you need to be able to remain upright for at least 30 minutes (60 minutes for Boniva) after taking the pill.

    If you cannot remain upright for that period of time and if you happen to lie down and the pill happens to reflux from your stomach and get stuck in your esophagus, the pill will erode a hole in your esophagus and kill you.

    No big whoop.

    Good grief, they should probably explain that.

    But there was also some disturbing information of weird shit it does to the JAWBONES of users. WTH is in that stuff that it demolishes jaw bones?

    I'm still trying to figure out why a three hour and fifty-nine minute erection is okay, but at four hours you need to call a doctor...

    have you seen the one for chantix? It sounds safer to keep smoking than it would be to take it.

    No, restless leg syndrome is very real. My mom has it, and so do I though I haven't been diagnosed. Clonipin (clonopin?) is what they gave her for it. She also has other nervous stuff...like jaw chomping, nerve spasms etc. My jaw also spasms every now and then, lots of fun especially with braces.

    I take xanax which seems to have eliminated the jimmy leg thing.
