Barbara Says:


I took Fosamax 2 years. Dueling that time I developed atrial fib, was shocked once & placed on Multaq. Continued to experience other heart issues such PAC's, bijimeney & was scheduled for an ablation in Austin, Tx. The doctor that placed me on Fosamax dc'd it after the 2 years & a week or so later, guess what? All the heart irregularities disappeared. Three months out, still no heart irregularities. I'm so thankful that I didn't have the ablation before getting off the Fosamax.

I'm very glad that you are no longer having any problems and hope that it continues.

And yes, there are many reports of Fosamax causing atrial fibrillation in women that take it.

Learn more Fosamax details here.

Are you still having your heart function checked regularly?
