Hi, I Am Wondering What Drug Choices There Are For Osteoporosis In Canada That Are Generally Covered By Insurance?

Hi, I Am Wondering What Drug Choices There Are For Osteoporosis In Canada That Are Generally Covered By Insurance?

I am currently taking Risedronate 35mg once weekly but find it a hassle the strict way in which it must be taken. Thanks in advance.

I’ve taken algecal for two years. The first year, I took it with the strontium boost, which they strongly recommend, and my numbers shot up like crazy! Then, I found out that the strontium throws off the results by as much as 10 or more points... So, I continued to take the algecal another year, without much of the strontium, and then compared my results to the ones from two years prior, and my results had increased some, not significantly, but anything steady or up is great! Definitely better than losing more! I’m going to continue taking it, I haven’t had any side effects at all.
