Should i take the new medication forteo? I have been taking actonel, (risedronate) my last bone density test showed i had 10 percent bone loss.
I am afraid to take the drug because of the side effects. Is there something else i can
Actonel (risedronate) : Actonel (risedronate) and Forteo are in a class of drugs called bisphonates. These drugs are very valuable in preventing fractures of bone due to progressive loss of bone density called osteoporosis. Yes the drugs have been associated with several significant side effects, but like any drug you need to weigh the benefits against these side effects. Spinal, hip and long bone fractures can have serious life altering effects on ones life, more serious than the side effects, so if you are at risk of fracture, which your bone scan indicates, then use of these drugs are justified.

They can review the risks and benefits to help you make a decision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
