Just Diagnosed With Severe Osteoporosis And Doctor Wants Me To Take FORTEO…..REALLY AFRAID.

Just Diagnosed With Severe Osteoporosis And Doctor Wants Me To Take FORTEO…..REALLY AFRAID.

Can you tell me what your experience with Forteo has been?

Hi, I'm coming to the end of my 2 years of Forteo injections. I've had no issues at all with it and my latest DXA scan placed me in the normal range! So it has made a significant difference to my bone density.
The proof is in the pudding as they say: I'd a bad fall face first helpless onto concrete path at Christmas (dog's lead in the dark...) and had to go to A+E for X-rays on nose (the blood!!) And wrist. No breaks...
I'll be swopping to oral supplements in September: the 2 years have flown (despite lockdowns), which is the max treatment on the injection, and in my opinion it was worth the hassle.
Best of luck 🍀👍

It seems it may have been coincidental that I got sick after my second shot as I have been ill ever since - I plan to try again in a day or two when I feel
Better

Hi took my second shot yesterday eve and felt a little lightheaded. Early hours of morning I was really rough- not sure if it was Forteo or not. I would be interested To learn of your experience. I’m going to skip today and try again tomorrow. I found the actual shot really easy and painless to administer so I pray that it was just a coincidence and next time I will be fine
