Osteoporosis: there are multiple medications available for osteoporosis.we have prolia which is an intra muscular injection and reclast (zoledronic acid) which is an IV infusion, both are very effective for odteoporosis. When pts have GI issues , i donot recommend oral bisphosphanates like fosamax.
