Reclast and Omeprazole
Hi! I just joined after extensively researching for an answer to my dilemma. At 65, and after supplementing and exercising, I have osteoporosis in my lumbar spine of 2.9. My endocrinologist initially recommended Fosamax (which I had previously taken for 10 years, ending 10 years ago). But after an endoscopy found Barretts esophagus with no dysplasia, my GI recommends lifelong Omeprazole, starting immediately and my Endocrine recommends Reclast. I am deeply concerned about the effect of Omeprazole on my bone health – warnings include osteoporosis, and a reclast injection with side effects. Both drugs have a risk of kidney complications.
Don't know what to do – does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this? Thank you!
