alternative dosages for Tymlos or Forteo
I’m taking Forteo now. Just started my 4th month of injections (no side effects so far!). Can you share how much your bone density increased? And what did you follow up with after you finished with the Forteo?

Spine bone density increased 11%. T score went from-3.9 to -2.8. Femoral neck bone density increased 7%. T score went from -2.6 to -2.0. After forteo, I was on reclast for several years until my doctor recommended Prolia several years ago. It took almost 19byears for the bone density in my spine to increase by 16% and my T score to go from -3.7 to -2.3. I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the age of 41. Now, at the age of 60, I hope that these treatments will prevent me from having the spine and hip fractures that my mother had in her 80's.
