Would Anyone Know How Long Foresto Works In Our System After Completing 2 Year Course Please?

Would Anyone Know How Long Foresto Works In Our System After Completing 2 Year Course Please?

I completed my 2 year course of Foreto beginning of May ’19, and had a DXA done in Oct ’19 which showed a disimprovement in scores. Rheumy now wants me to have an Aclasta infusion (Zoledronic Acid) to “keep gains”. I understand that Forteo is an anabolic - affecting osteoclasts and osteoblasts and when we stop taking it we need something to slow down the osteoclasts. My question is around this - how long are the osteoclasts supercharged after stoping Forteo ?
