In brief: Acto-no

In my experience the patented drudeveloped to improve the bine density scan have not proven to prevent bone fractires.
In fact, the black box warning states that these drugs cause brittle bone and increases risk of fracture. The ultimate goal in medicine is to get clinical outcomes while doing no harm. Bio identical hormone replacement has been proven to both produce bone & and stop bone loss.
