this is almost a year later... are you still not taking any prescription drug for your osteoporosis? Am interested to know what/why your doctor is recommending for your treatment now...
I'm 62 Fem. with T score -3.5. My doctor is putting me on Actonel but I am reluctant to start. Side effects are very worrisome... not sure what to do. I have started mega doses of supplements and calcium and D and excercise and I want someone to tell me that that has worked for them. Most comments I get is to take the drug because it's more effective. I can't believe everyone is taking bisphosphonates or other drugs like that.
Please let me hear from you if you see this!,,, Thanks, and hope you are doing well!
I have just finished with taking Fosamax for the past 5 years and the bone density test that I did last week showed great improvement with a T score
ranging from -1.9 to -2.1 over various parts. Am taking a drug holiday and will be doing another test in a year to see if it holds up. In the meantime, will continue taking calcium, vit. D and doing exercises.
