Question Actonel/knee pain/help!!!

My mom is 84 years old and has always been extremely active, that is until she started taking Actonel, 2 years ago. She has extreme knee pain....all xrays, mri's show no arthritis, all in her head! NOT, after reading all the info I could on the net, I'm taking her off of it asap, and replacing with 1000 mg calcium. This is a ridiculous drug, and perhaps a class action suit need to be filed.

I am so glad I found this site and hope other will answer. I have been on Acetonel for 3 months and have developed terrible GERD....never had a problem in the past. I thought it was sinus drainage and found out that it is GERD...I am up 5-6 times a night, weak, feel nauseated, etc. I would appreciate any other commnets. I took my last dose this morning...
