Does anyone know about the new drug from Amgen? I asked my mom's dr. about it today as it was approved by the FDA a couple of months ago but they don't have it yet. It sounds like it's far above the other bone-building drugs in terms of effectiveness. However, who knows how long it will be until it's widely used? I think it's called Evenity.

Hello @hilsy,

I appreciate your sharing about the new drug, Evenity. All of us with bone-thinning problems look forward to hearing of new drugs to treat this problem.

As I had not heard about Evenity previously, I researched a little bit and found this information on drugs.com. Here is the link, https://www.drugs.com/nda/evenity_190121.html. The manufacturer also has information available but often that is harder for a lay-person to understand.

Here is a link, however, to a press release regarding the drug, https://www.amgen.com/media/news-releases/2019/04/fda-approves-evenity-romosozumabaqqg-for-the-treatment-of-osteoporosis-in-postmenopausal-women-at-high-risk-for-fracture/.

@hilsy, are you asking about this drug for yourself or for a family member?
