Prolia treatment for osteoporosis
By the way, I’m on Forteo, a daily self injection for 1-2 years. Effective with fewer side effects.

Hi there……that was a great choice for your build the bone time of 1-2 years. The question becomes….what do you do when your time on Forteo is up and now you need to protect the new bone. That is when you have to choose a bisphosphonate or Prolia. Since I am very allergic to bisphosphonates, I only had one choice…Prolia. So far…no side effects.
This is why I think there just has to be some work done in the research lab so we can rely on the medications without side effects. Where is the development money being spent? Is this a gender issue in the pharmaceutical world?
May you find joy today.
