In brief: Great concern!

This is best determined by your personal need, current medical condition and "risk".
After your screening, family history and medical history review -you and your clinician may seek what works best for you. Often the 1st choice may not be suited for your individual profile.

In brief: Consult

The drug is chosen based on your age and bone density.
A consult would help determine what alternatives are available for you.
