I am 55 and have been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis of the spine (-3.5) and osteopenia of the hip.
I I tried Boniva, but had a bad reaction to the first dose. I started Evista last April, and the only negative side affect has been an 8 pound weight gain. I went to a specialist who said I should do something more. He recommended Forteo. I started treatment yesterday. He also recommended that I continue to take the Evista. Does anyone else do this? I don't like taking any drugs and now I find myself with two.
