So Forteo is more expensive than Tymlos? I have to call the endocrinologist with my decision on which med to go with so that they can start contacting my insurance so I am not sure of cost yet. Maybe I should have them contact both so that I can compare. Thank you for the reply!

Just spoke to a friend. Her husband is on insulin and takes refrigerated meds wherever he goes so it doesnt seem to be as much of a problem once you get used to it, I think.

I have been on Tymlos for 4 months and it's been comfortable so far - the injections are something you get used to, and I have been fortunate to have no side effects. However, I'm planning to go on an international trip in January and I'm worried about traveling with Tymlos. I will need to start a new pen before I return home, but won't be able to keep it refrigerated during the 10 days before I start using it. I'm also concerned about getting through airport security with the medication and needles, and I don't want it to go through the Xray machine. What information does my doctor's note need to include? Has anyone else got experience with tips on how to successfully navigate this? Thanks in advance.
