Blondie and Taape:
I am 5 months away from ending my 2yrs on Forteo. Let me know what choices you both come up with after seeing the specialist. I have my regular 6 month check up with my dr. next week and I have a whole list of questions for him so that I can really do my homework between now and when I stop the drug, so that I can make a totally informed decision. At this point I am going to ask him about Strontium and see what his opinion is. He is very involved in the latest research and goes to all the national and international conferences on Osteo, so it will be interesting to see what he says. I am really apprehensive about taking one of the bisphosphonates(orally or infusion) as I have never had to before the forteo. I am hoping he provides me with some alternatives that will maintain all the good results that the last 2 years have built up. I haven't heard anything about tooth decay with the forteo and my dentist hasn't said anything about my teeth. In the last year I have had 2 old mercury cavities replaced because they were starting to crack a little and he wanted to take care before they got to a worse point. I think those cavities were at least 15-20 years old and from what I understand the old mercury ones eventually need to be replaced with porcelin. I guess I could ask my dr. about the dental issue too.
