In brief: Not the best

Bisphosphonates can reduce fracture and raise you dexa scan scores but they donot build bone.
If you are osteoporotic and have already had a fracture, consider Forteo to build bone first.

In brief: Yes

As a rheumatologist, I use these drugs multiple times a day.
They can be extremely helpful for osteoporosis and most are well tolerated.
