Hello,

Fosamax is used to treat osteoporosis and get your bone density to normal so I don't think you should stop it. I'll suggest take domperidone 10 mg and ranitidine 150 mg twice daily. It will help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Prabhash Verma, General & Family Physician
