After Forteo
Sep 8, 2006
... I plan to try alternative methods to retain BMD after Forteo, but if the alternative methods do not work, and if BMD starts declining after I have been off Forteo for 6 months or a year, I will probably reluctantly begin bisphosphonates. ... (26 replies)
... we need to continue with something after the Forteo. I certainly don't want to lose any gains I may have made or think about all that money that went toward the Forteo being wasted.

After Forteo
May 22, 2009
... Thanks. Supposedly, the side effects from I/V Boniva usually occur in the first day or two, and so far I've noticed nothing at all. (I did drink lots of water before going in for the I/V.) In considering bisphosphonates, I definitely wanted an I/V. I had acid reflux for a number of years, and I didn't want to take a chance on it coming back or having any of the other... (3 replies)
