Ellen Waller, Montreal, Canada
For several weeks I've observed that my legs just weren't listening to me anymore. I knew something was wrong and I dreaded the fact that I might have started the road to osteoporosis. Prevention was the key and that is why I started to use Fosamax. My bones began to fell tougher and my pain progressively went away.
Helene McNeill, Dublin, Ireland
I never thought that the signs of old age will strike me so fast. I felt how with each passing day I lost strength in my legs and I needed something to rebalance things. Hearing about the wonderful effects of Fosamax I decided to try it for myself. It was a good decision because I began to feel my bones becoming stronger and thus I began to rejoice. Thank you for keeping my body young.
