Salmon calcitonin

Posted by phyllisden @phyllisden, Jan 25, 2023

Has anyone used the nasal spray salmon calcitonin? I’ve had 3 Prolia shots (severe osteoporosis and have had several broken bones including a vertebral fracture from a fall). I’ve had no real side effects of the Prolia but am concerned about the possible long term effects.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Osteoporosis & Bone Health Support Group.

It’s been almost a year since you posted your question. I wonder if you tried calcitonin?
I had my first Prolia shot 3 months ago.
The travel agent/friend uses calcitonin and suggested I try it if I was fearful of Prolia. She says it sometimes irritates her nasal passages and has to take a break from it. She has been using it for two years.
