I have heard that having a Prolia injection every 6 months is not the most effective treatment for osteoporosis. Not sure what to take this.

I watched a segment on Youtube by a Doctor who claims that Prolia prevents osteoclasts from clearing away the old bone and subsequently the osteoblasts form new bone on old bones which makes them more brittle. He claims that research indicates that if this medication is take for five or more years there will be a higher risk of bone fracture.

I was diagnosed with RA 3 1/2 years.About the same time,I was diagnosed with eczema!Are these possibly connected?

In October,I broke my tibia due to osteoporosis. I was in a Brace and on prednisone or 3 months.After finishing therapy in a pool and meds ,I thought I was in remission. Now I am breaking out with eczema and starting to ache again. Just wondered if anyone had the coincidence of eczema with RA.

Has anyone used EVISTA for Osteoperosis Treatment?

Has anyone used EVISTA for Osteoperosis Treatment?

Does anyone have any experience taking EVISTA? My doctor has suggested this as an alternative to Bisphosphonates as I had concerns about the side effects with those drugs. Curious any experiences anyone has had (positive or negative) - in particular any side effects, negative reactions, etc. Any information would be welcome and helpful.

Thank You!
