I am taking alendronic acid 70 mg due to take 6th tablet on

This answer was rated:

I am taking alendronic acid 70 mg due to take 6th tablet on Monday I have soreness in my tongue and throat on right side I think might have been caused by tablet no.5 which got caught in loose denture and started to dissolve. Should I just postpone no. 6 and contact surgery or should I go to A&E?

Hi. My name is***** have over two decades of experience, and I'm online and available to help you today.

We can also chat by hone and skype.

the one fosamax tablet that briefly got stuck on a loose denture should not cause you any long term problems.

There is no need, from what you have posted, for you to go to A&E.

You can take your next tablet as scheduled just watch so it doesn't get stuck on that wayward denture like the last one did.

You can mention this event to your MD on your next visit but, once again, I do not believe you need to contact Surgery on an emergent basis.

So. What is the take home message?

You will be fine :)

Does this make sense to you?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
