Tymlos side effects

Posted by dkholmes @dkholmes, Feb 12, 2020

I have been on Tymlos for 1 1/2 years. I was wondering if anyone else has developed eye problems while being on Tymlos. Specifically fluid behind the retina.

Good evening @dkholmes Welcome to Connect. I am so glad you responded to our discussion. We want to be a good sounding board that will help everyone make better choices.

And to your question about eye problems, e.g. fluid behind the retina. I have only been on Tymlos for 7 months. Yet, last month I had another full exam at my ophthalmologist and nothing was noted to me or on the chart. What is somewhat worth a smile, is that I suffer from severe dry eye including the oil glands under my eye. I use Xiidra and other eye stuff so that I don't lose the surface cells which cannot be replaced so quickly at 77.

Have a lovely sleep tonight. Chris

Hi @dkholmes, I'd like to add my welcome to @artscaping's. I'd also like to invite @curlylocks, @cireland, @georgette12, and @migizii to this discussion to talk about their experiences with Tymlos as well. Many members have discussed Forteo vs. Tymlos and their experience with each in this discussion as well, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/forteo-vs-tymlos-1/.

@dkholmes, have you met with an ophthalmologist to confirm the fluid behind your retina? Have your eye issues gotten worse the longer you have been on Tymlos?

I have been taking tymlos 80cc for about 6 or 7 months . Daily, usually. I don't notice a difference in aches and pains from low bone density and osteoporosis. On the other hand maybe I would be worse if I didn't take it.

Hello @dugs1948. I understand you are looking to connect with members who have experience with Tymlos to see if they can relate to your side effect of pain in the left groin.

The following members have mentioned some experience with Tymlos @panda17 and @artscaping while @contentandwell is set to start Tymlos in the coming days, so have also looped her in for her perspective in the event she did research prior to starting.

I did a quick search and did find mention of groin pain in Evenity, in case that is of any help in getting closer to understanding your symptom which we wait for other members to weigh in.

When did you share your concern with your doctor?

I get left-sided groin pain when I have been sitting a lot. I have two remedies:

1) from a video (this one is so clear and really works)

2) By fisting the muscles of the buttock quite strongly. This also works.

I always think it a good idea to have two or three different ways of healing a problem because repetition sometimes loses potency!

Good luck. see if you can find a third way too!
