Re: Miacalcin
May 30, 2005
The bisphosphonates are much better. There is a head to head study of Fosamax vs Miacalcin and it shows that Fosamax builds more bone. Not sure if there is any Actonel vs Miacalcin data. So, if you can tolerate a bisphosphonate such as Fosamax or Actonel....they are more efficacious.

Also, Miacalcin does not 'build' bone. Only Forteo can build new bone. Miacalcin is an antiresorptive that decreases bone resorption...Eventually, bone formation exceeds resorption and with proper secondary mineralization, your BMD will increase.
