My mother had it, I should not have been surprised.   Doc put me on once-a-week alendronate sodium (the generic of Fosamax).  Once a week is fine with me and the pills are cheap..  I put the little blister  tab in my 7 day pill thingy -in place of- my vitamins and BP pill .  The instructions for proper usage are both clear and a bit scary if you mess up so I'm being very careful .

I've found a CURA_HEAT pad on my lower back to be helpful to keep the pain at bay most of the time.
