Tymlos side effects

Posted by dkholmes @dkholmes, Feb 12 4:52pm

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.
