How soon should you begin taking a relay drug after stopping Prolia?

Keith McCormick writes about this in his new book "Great Bones," The standard timing is 6 months after the last Prolia, for Reclast (2nd choice alendronate). He says the timing is actually very individual and if you do it too early, the Reclast won't work and if you do it too late, you will have already possibly lost bone and increased fracture risk. He says 6 months is too early for some and too late for others and right for still others. The key, according to him, is to do blood tests to determine optimal timing. He goes into detail on how. I just moved but when I find the book I can say more! Or you could try to get the book in the library.
Thank you so much for the info. I will definitely get the book.
