Broken Toe Says:

I have osteoporosis and used to take Fosamax but I stopped taking it a few years ago because of the bad publicity it was getting. I broke my toe 6 months ago and it still hasn't healed. Will taking Fosamax help heal my toe or will it hinder it? So far, I have received conflicting advice. Many thanks.

From what I could gather, Fosamax is used for osteoporosis and several other bone diseases. However, it doesn't really get into any specific details as to what other types of bone diseases it actually covers.
After looking at the side effect profile of this drug, I would honestly stay away from Fosamax, as I don't think it's worth it.

If anything I would simply suggest eating more fresh fruits and vegetables to help your body heal quicker. This, along with meditation or use of other herbs, may be even more beneficial for speeding up the healing process.

I hope this helps!

I broke my wrist last April but didn't go to MD. It healed sort of crooked, but it healed in about 8 weeks. And there's no pain.
I took fosamax for only 2 weeks years ago, until my jaw started to hurt. So fosamax wasn't involved in healing my wrist. I do take a lot of neutraceuticals, but I think the 3000 units of calcium and 10,000 of vitamin D is what did the trick. I'm pretty amazed myself. But it can't do you any harm to try the calcium & Vitamin D. Good luck!
