Researchers at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have taken a close look at the long-term benefit of bisphosphonates, a class of medications widely prescribed to treat osteoporosis.

Are you taking bisphosphonates (Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, etc.)? How long have you been taking them and have you discussed continued use with your doctor?
