1 doctor agrees

In brief: Very but it depends!

Miacalcin is fda-approved brand of nasal calcitonin used to treat osteoporosis (http://www.
Pharma.Us.Novartis.Com/product/pi/pdf/miacalcin_nasal.Pdf). However, all medications, prescription & otc, as well as dietary supplements & herbs, have side effects. So only take medications, etc if potential benefit outweighs risk of side effects. Question of safety for you needs to be addressed by ur doc.
