Anyone experience unexplained weight loss with Tymlos?

Posted by frales @frales, 6 days ago

Has anyone else experienced unexplained weight loss after injecting Tymlos for 6 months?

Welcome @frales, According to the article from Mayo Clinic, loss of appetite and loss of weight are common side effects with Tymlos (abaloparatide) injection. https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/abaloparatide-subcutaneous-route/side-effects/drg-20406221

I believe fellow members @rubyz and @kilh also experienced weight loss.

Frales, have you mentioned the weight loss to your doctor? Are you concerned about the amount of weight you're losing and getting good nutrition?

Thank you for the welcome @colleenyoung. I have made my doctor aware of my weight loss. Currently approximately a pound a week. I don’t, however have a reduced appetite. In fact, I am trying to eat more calories than in the past, to no avail.

I'm glad you told your doctor and that you are monitoring this. Your doctor will want to rule out anything else that might be contributing to the unexpected weight loss. It may be coincidental that it started at the same time as you began treatment with Tymlos.
