... I took fosamax 7 weeks, then 7 weeks off , then forteo. I can't imagine waiting 7 weeks would make any difference though, as the half life of fosamax is over 10 years. ... (14 replies)
... To answer your question, I don't thinks such a thing exists. There is Strontium Citrate which isn't an rx, it's otc, like Phyllis mentioned, but as far as rx meds go I don't think you'll ever find one that doesn't have a warning on it. ... (10 replies)
... BoneMan, I'm also on HGH, but I take it every other day so that it doesn't stop my natural HGH from being formed.

If she has the Part D plan, they pay a portion of Fosamax, Actenol, Boniva, SERMS (what she's on) hormones, Calcitonin (injectable and nasal spray) and Forteo (but it's supper expensive). ...

... Osteoblast, You're absolutely right, we do tend to get caught up in this decision making which in turn causes the anxiety. If, when I was diagnosed, the doc would have said "here's a pill, you'll be fine". But she knew I would not be able to take Fosamax, Boniva, or Actonel because of my stomach and asked me to hang in there till she thought this through more because of... (12 replies)
