How did you choose your treatment?

How did you choose your treatment?

I went against my endo's recommendation and choose what I thought to be the least invasive drug with the fewest side effects after I was unable to take Fosamax. I am currently taking Evista, Ca and Vit D but I am scheduled for my second bone scan. I am hoping to have made progress but my doctor is not hopeful. He wants me to choose between Forteo and Tymlos. He says I am not building bone and these are the best options for this issue. I don't want to take any of these drugs… read more

Janice, how many years have you been on Prolia? I believe 5 years is optimal, but what after that? Perhaps it causes my dry mouth at night, if so, that… read more

osteoporosis treatment

osteoporosis treatment

I took several of the once-per-week treatments (@Actonel, Fosomax, etc.) for over 10 years after I was diagnosed with osteopenia at age 48. I discontinued those treatments in 2013 when I had a dental implant, and did not go back on them because I had already taken them for 10 years. I am now 66 and have been diagnosed with osteoporosis. My doctor says there is no treatment for me now, because I already took the standard treatment for 10 years. Is this true? What kind of specialist should I… read more

Since my 5 endplate fractures my spine has shrunk and now my ribs sit inside my hips when I’m on my feet or sitting when I lay down I seem to stretch out a bit I have a small gap between them. It can cause discomfort, vacuuming is the worst ,it becomes quite painful. Is there any treatment for this does any one know. I would see older people with long legs and rather short bodies and hoped I would never end up like this never realising this is what caused it. I used to be 5ft 9 now I am… read more

Forteo

Forteo

I fractured my femur bone, had surgery to implant titanium rods, and took a long time to recover. My diagnosis is Osteoporosis. I take Tums for calcium. I wonder why I wasn’t prescribed something like Forteo. I was told that my condition usually worsens, and I am high risk for more fractures.

Has anyone else been prescribed only Tums?

How can I get off Prolia SAFELY?

How can I get off Prolia SAFELY?

I had been on Prolia about 6 years. It wasn't helping much but at least I wasn't getting worse.
Then because of a change in medical personnel at the center where I got it, there was a brief delay about 4 weeks or so) in getting my shot. There were no warnings about the danger of delay; I was just told my appointment would be later when the new doctor was available, and there were no warnings in Amgen's info to alert me. As a result I suffered three vertebral fractures and have… read more
