@missymew, It is a lot of information to process so that you can make an informed decision. Medication sensitivity may be unknown. Everyone is so different. If you want to do some preparation, there are sites that can give you some before and after bone density scores with different treatments. Sometimes it depends on where the scan is….of your wrist or your ankle or even your hip. Let me see If I can put my finger on one. I'll be back. Sleep well. Chris

@missymew, Here are results from some clinical trials with Boniva. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2898002/

If I read your post correctly you are trying to ameliorate the fact that after menopause we tend to use bone faster than we can replenish it. So..the medication that can achieve that objective while not causing side effects and being affordable and easy to administer….now that is what we are seeking.

Here is more information that may even be more helpful. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3192207/
And from Mayo Clinic…..www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/bone-density.

Best wishes for learning everything thing you need to know and everything you need to ask your practitioner about so that you can become your own advocate. Remember that making a good decision, gathering information and weighing your issues, including your spine, doesn't necessarily mean that you will make the right or even a good decision. Your health care team can weigh in and help you. And please stay in touch as you proceed on this journey. Let us know how we can help. Have a peaceful sleep tonight. Chris
