Oct 25, 2018 · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

There has got to be a better endocrinologist for you! I live in CT and just found out that Yale has a bone center so I’m setting up a consult. Maybe look at the good hospitals in your area and get a referral. You shouldn’t be reduced to tears. You should be hopeful after a visit. Best of luck

Oct 21, 2018 · Forteo vs. Tymlos in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I am just joining this group- trying to decide between Forteo and Tymlos. Tymlos has not been on the market long whereas Forteo has been on for 16 years. Forteo has to be refrigerated (inconvenient) and Tymlos doesn't. I'm a little worried about taking a brand new drug. Can anyone offer some perspective? I'm 56 years old with OP in spine -3.3, neck -2.3. Thank you so much.

I'm 56 with Osteoporosis and am trying to choose between Forteo and Tymlos for injectible. Forteo has been around so much longer (16 years vs. 1 1/2 for Tymlos) but I don't like the inconvenience of having to refrigerate it. Can anyone offer a perspective? Many thanks!

So Forteo is more expensive than Tymlos? I have to call the endocrinologist with my decision on which med to go with so that they can start contacting my insurance so I am not sure of cost yet. Maybe I should have them contact both so that I can compare. Thank you for the reply!

Just spoke to a friend. Her husband is on insulin and takes refrigerated meds wherever he goes so it doesnt seem to be as much of a problem once you get used to it, I think.

I have to make a decision on Forteo vs. Tymlos and am not sure what to choose. Forteo has been around a lot longer, but has to be refrigerated. Tymlos only around 1 1/2 years but is shelf stable and seems to have less side effects and less issues with calcium. Can anyone offer their perspective? Thank you!
