As so often happens with new osteoporosis drugs – and Reclast infusion is a fairly new treatment – the truth becomes shrouded as pharmaceutical companies make grabs for money, power, recognition, and more money. The humble osteoporosis patient gets lost in the proverbial shuffle. She hears the doctor’s diagnosis of osteoporosis as if it were a deadly disease, and she … Click to continue →

ALERT: Bisphosphonates Almost Double The Risk Of Vision Loss

alert 66 comments

Pick up any container of laundry detergent, and you're likely to find this warning printed on it: “If swallowed, rinse mouth, drink a large glassful of water or milk, and contact a physician.” Yet millions of unsuspecting osteoporosis patients are prescribed bisphosphonates by their physicians - drugs that contain the same ingredients as laundry products. Does that make any sense? … Click to continue →

Prolia Pros And Cons

prolia 16 comments

At only 2 years out from FDA approval, Prolia (generic name, denosumab) is still considered a new treatment – so the pros and cons are still being weighed and considered by patients, doctors, and researchers.

Negative Side Effects Of Reclast

reclast 5 comments

In some ways, it seems a bit redundant to talk about the “negative side effects” of Reclast – after all, even the short-term, positive side effects (such as high scores on bone density tests) are ultimately negative. By forcing density, all osteoporosis drugs eventually cause bone to become too hard and prone to breakage; by preventing the normal wearing down … Click to continue →

If you’ve been reading up on the side effects of osteoporosis medications, you have undoubtedly heard about osteonecrosis of the jaw, and osteonecrosis and Fosamax in particular.

As Big Pharma continues to come up with ever-more creative ways of getting osteoporosis drugs into your body, you may have heard of the latest injectable form of osteoporosis medication: Forteo (teriparatide).

Taking Evista And Boniva

evista-and-boniva 10 comments

Many osteoporosis patients find themselves taking Evista and Boniva even if they have reservations about these drugs. Maybe it’s because their doctors said things like this: “If you don’t take Evista, your bones are going to get so brittle you’ll get fractures just going up stairs.” “There are no natural alternatives to Evista. so this is your only alternative.” “If … Click to continue →

aloe-osteoporosis 49 comments

I love doing yard work. It not only gives me an excuse to take a break and enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine; I also find it relaxing and rewarding. A couple of years ago I’ve planted a lemon tree on my front lawn, along with a fragrant Confederate jasmin. In my backyard, there’s a thorny raspberry bush and a miniature … Click to continue →

Boniva Side Effects

boniva 26 comments

When your doctor wants to prescribe an osteoporosis medication such as Boniva, does he or she take the time to warn you about Boniva’s side effects? It’s always interesting to me the way some doctors tend to be so heavy-handed in prescribing medications for osteoporosis. Because they see osteoporosis as a disease, they want to ply their patients with the … Click to continue →

The Once-A-Month Actonel Dose

actonel 7 comments

In 2008, the FDA approved the once-a-month Actonel dose. Their reasoning came from a single study that compared the benefits of a daily 5mg Actonel dose with a monthly 150mg dose, and the monthly dose was found to be “just as effective.” The new dosage was hailed as a more convenient option; no more remembering to take a pill each … Click to continue →
