See details: Mild cases may not require treatment. For the patients needing treatment, many of the meds used to treat osteoporosis will also treat pagets. I generally use Reclast (zoledronic acid) but there are other choices.

Which one: Paget's disease is a disorder that involves abnormal bone destruction and regrowth, which results in deformity.The cause of paget's disease is unknown, although it might have to do with genes or a viral infection early in life. There is another one called Paget disease of the breast. Good luck thanks.
