Despite taking Didrocal for 7 years for osteopenia, my recent bone density test changed my diagnosis to osteoporosis. My GP asked me to research the more potent osteoporosis drugs on the internet before discussing medication options with her, stating I'd find some "pretty scary stuff". At my next appointment, I expected to get some resistance from her after deciding I didn't want to take any of these medications, but preferred to try to manage my condition naturally. Instead, she completely supported my decision, saying she was "on the fence" about this entire class of meds. She specifically mentioned necrosis of the jaw and esophageal cancer. I'm now taking Strontium as recommended by several on this forum. And, I'm looking into vibration therapy -- something my doc thought might be helpful.
