Re: [IP] Actonel or Fosamax

I used to take the once a day Actonel. In May my gynecologist switched me to 
the once a week Fosomax. Neither one of them affeced my blood sugars. With 
both you must remain in an upright position and not eat or drink anything 
except plain water for 30 min. after taking. No coffee either. This is to 
protect your larynx from the medicine and the medicine is not absorbed as 
well if you can not remain upright.

My doctor has prescribed Actonel to help me combat the beginning of 
osteoporosis. I take it once a week on an empty stomach. I have to remain 
upright (standing or sitting) for sometime after it, and I cannot eat 
anything for 30 minutes.

Is anyone else taking this?

How does it affect T1?
