Tymlos

Tymlos

Has anyone tried Tymlos? My doctor wants me to use it for 2 years. I have osteoporous and a bone disease called hypophosphatasia.
Just wondering what problems you may have had with it.
thank you

I was on for two years with no benefit but no side effects as well. I ended up with four months of unused Tymlos when I was all through. Tried to give it away and was told that was illegal.

Tymlos And Back Pain

Tymlos And Back Pain

Have been managing my back pain for several years. Started Tymlos on April 24th. No side effects, except after two weeks giving myself Tymlos injections, developed horrible pain in my vertebrae and unable to get out of this pain cycle with my usual medications, exercise and my most treasured possession, my heating pad!
Has anyone else experienced the same? If so, is this a side effect that subsided? Any other suggestions welcome.

Has Anyone Used Tymlos?

Has Anyone Used Tymlos?

Has anyone here used the drug Tymlos? My doctor wants to prescribe it for me and I am very hesitant. It is a new drug with a long list of scary side effects and also is self injected, which is scary to me. I prefer a more holistic approach, but she seems to feel this is a better way to go. Can anyone give me some insight?

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 because of all the… read more

Help With Cost Of Forteo

Help With Cost Of Forteo

I have Medicare. My plan will cover 70%. GoodRX will lower cost by about 100. That still leaves me with about 550. I am raising my grandson with no child support. I need to either find a job where I don't have to stand all day or find a program that will help with the cost. Does anyone have suggestions? If you've had this problem, how did you overcome it?

Before anyone suggests it, I live in an area where internet is unavailable....

If you get in contact with a agent who sells polices or apply for help through DCF program I got help with my pills.

What Specific Foods Do You Take To Help With Vitamin D?

What Specific Foods Do You Take To Help With Vitamin D?

I drink the orange juice with calcium and vitamin D and take 400mg of calcium citrate a day with D but want to start improving my eating habits now. I will be starting Tymlos within the next few weeks and want to get a head start and begin to fill my refrigerator and cupboards with more healthy options. Adding too much exercise will be more difficult so I am starting with water aerobics/exercise to get back in the habit of doing something regularly. I lost a lot of weight & this time without… read more
