Osteoporosis Message Board

Osteoporosis Board Index

I am in almost the same boat you are. I have been on Fosamax for almost 2 years and after 1 year my scores went down too. My doc suggested Reclast but so far hasn't convinced me why he thinks the Fosamax isn't working, and I am not ready to jump to something else without a good reason. So, I made an appointment for a second opinion at an Integrative Medicine Center near my house. The doctors there have done a 2 year fellowship with Dr. Andrew Weil in Arizona. I have followed him for years now and he really knows his stuff. He is Harvard trained doc who practices and teaches how to combine eastern and western medicine. I want to see someone who will look at my osteo journey in an "out of the box "way, to make sure that I am not missing something. I really trust my regular doc, but am not one to just go from one medication to another lightly. I have always fought medications, but know that I have to take my situation seriously because my dexa numbers are pretty scary.(-4.1 spine -3's in my hips) We should keep in touch with each other about the direction we both decide to take. You can always go on Weil's website to learn more about him and his philosophy if you like, and he puts out an awesome newsletter each month. Good luck to you.
