I would think twice before simply prescribing this drug for prevention. The side effects can be quite debilitating despite the gloss over in this article. The drug accelorates bone density loss and places users at risk for fractures. Many users also need to be on drugs like Boniva as a result with more complications.

Then again, this may be a good thing if you have a high incidence of BC in your immediate family.

Think twice before simply taking the drug
