I think that I will up all the essential supplements for my bones and see how that effects my next dexa scan before going on a new level of osteoporosis medication. I may also slightly reduce the Effexor and see if I can tolerate a lower dose. I do take a micro dose of melatonin at night for sleep. I cannot tolerate anything over 1mg without getting terrible nightmares.

Hello Dancingtree, you are the first person I've ever heard of beside myself, That doesn't tolerate melatonin very well. It has been known to give me insomnia. May I ask what dose of it you are taking? I have only seen it in a 3 mg that is that's the lowest milligram I have seen. And I don't think they are scored for easy breaking in half. I hope your plan works for you. Please keep us posted. I am struggling with the same situation that is osteoporosis. Warmest wishes, Sunny flower
