... I was on Forteo for 15 months. The side effects that I had weren't as bad as the Fosamax side effects. On Forteo the first few days I had an upset stomach for a few hours after taking the injection, but that went away. ... (23 replies)
... I have tried Calcitonin and Fosamex at different times. With both medications I got back and lower leg muscle spasms. I believe it is caused because the medications decrease bone resorption and blood calcium levels. In other words more calcium stays in the bones and as a result sometimes the blood calcium gets low. The lower calcium levels in the blood can cause muscle... (8 replies)

Vitamin MK-7

... Dear Starfish: Thank you so much for taking time for your explanation. I have had 3 DEXA scans over the past 5 years. I am "overdue" for my next one, as per my physician. However, I am totally reluctant to go as I don't know if I would do anything differently. My doctor said we could try Evista if indicated. I have been "diagnosed" with osteopenia ... I am 47 years...

... Just a thought. Osteopenia and Osteoporosis are generally not believed to cause pain by themselves. Usually it's when a fracture happens that the real pain starts. The Osteoarthritis is probably what was causing your pain. These are opinions I've heard from various specialists and also on the various medical forums. I'm not in the medical profession myself, and I could be... (4 replies)

Osteoporosis at 39
Sep 26, 2008
... Welcome to the boards Omzenska:)! I'll try to answer your questions and hopefully some others will chime in too. First of all, it is possible to have a big discrepancy between hips and spine; my total lumbar is -3.0 but hips are something like -1.5. I'm at a loss to explain the DEXA discrepancy however, except to say that this brings into question exactly how "accurate" these... (6 replies)

... cannot tolerate the Osteo drugs. My mother in law just had to give them up as well because of the joint and muscle pain. Why don't you check out the natural strontium citrate supplement and give it a try.. you have nothing to lose after not increasing while using fosamax!!!! ... (1 replies)
... taking Forteo you would expect the score to go up meaning you are building new bone. Unfortunately, the article I'm referring to is talking about the effects of Strontium Ranelate, and I don't know if you will be able to get a Dr to agree that SR is the same as Strontium Citrate. In any event, I would definitely give it a shot. ... (3 replies)

... Just wanted to let all my friends on the board know that I stopped the 50000 units of D2 that my Doctor Rx'd a couple of years ago. Been reading lots of info about D3 and decided to self medicate with D3-1000 units once a day. My level has steadily gone up to about 58 with the D2 but, since the D3 is a natural dose, thought it would be better for me. I have an appt.... (4 replies)

... And, I have also read another article that talked about Actonel having fewer gi upset issues than fosamax. A number of people on this board are also using strontium which you may find interesting as well. ... (13 replies)
... Hi Starfish: I can give you a "very" simplistic answer to your question about bone meds affect on bmd's you would consider very good or normal. Don't forget all of our bones go through this remodeling process even if they are considered normal. We always hope that the normal bones won't get worse, and I would think yours are in excellent shape (except for your spine) which... (12 replies)
