Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Fosamax. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Common side effects include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Abdominal pain (stomach pain)
  • Bone, muscle, or joint pain
  • Indigestion or heartburn.
