Didrocal side effects and effectiveness?



I have just been put on didrocal for osteoporosis and found that during the first two weeks on the white pills I was experiencing a lot of aching bones as though I could feel my skeleton. It affected my sleep. I am not looking forward to round two. Is this normal. I want to switch to something else if this trend continues.
