My mother-in-law took two of the weekly doses of Actonel. She is 86 years old. She started vomiting blood and bled from rectum also. Came very close to dieing. Received 7 units of blood. Put tube down her throat to look at her stomach- She had a huge bleeding ulcer in her stomach. They finally got the bleeding to stop. Spent 1 week in hospital. Will take weeks to get her strength back. Wife taking care of her now! This is a dangerous drug! Needs to be taken off the market. I will be contacting Procter and Gamble. Also looking into taking legal action! They use people as guinea pigs- It's not ethical. If your on this drug I'd recommend you stop immediatly.
