Does Anyone Have Experience Of Taking Teriparatide? How Long To The Initial Side Effects Last?

A MyOsteoTeam Member asked a question 💭

I Have been prescribed teriparatide, and would like to hear about other's experiences. Oral drugs gave too many side effects, and IV Zolendrolate was not very effective. I am concerned about the possible side effects. Thank you
