OSTEOPOROSIS medication question...?
I have spinal cord injury and recently diagnosed with osteoporosis... which of these medication is more effective for my bones • actonel • aredia • boniva • didronel • evista • Forteo • fosamax • miacalcin • zometa • vivelle • reclas ps- im 26 ! Asked by Elly Loi 1 year ago.

My doctor took me off actonel, boniva, evista,fosamax over the years-they never worked. I'm 54 yrs old and the only one that worked for me was miacalcin spray. I went from having swiss cheese bones to strong bones. I had a total hysterectomy at age 35 and finally my bones are stronger. Good Luck. Answered by Pennie Pavan 1 year ago.

speak with an obgyn, maybe even the dr who diagnosed you with osteoporosis........if you get pregnant and drink TONS of milk and other bone building foods....brocoli, buck choy, rhubarb, yogurt, cheese, supplements, bananas.......you can actually build bone. check into food supplements though. I've heard most about boniva and know someone who took evista. she did well with evista.....good luck Answered by Shalonda Willett 1 year ago.

Follow your doctor's prescription I suggest. My sister in law uses Fosamax once per week plus calcium; she is 62, my wife uses Fosavance once per week plus calcium; she is 72. There is a once a month version but reputedly is unproven. Keep on the research you have a long way to go. Good luck. Answered by Luke Loehlein 1 year ago.

Answered by Brianna Souder 1 year ago.

Hi, I think you should go to google and enter dermatomyositis in the search you should get alot of information. Also your spelling makes it really difficult to understand your questions so make sure to use the spell check. I copied this for you. In addition to medications, patients should take several precautions to prevent complications related to myositis and its treatments. These precautions include: Osteoporosis prevention — A calcium supplement (1500 mg) with vitamin D (800 mg), and a calcium anti-resorptive agent such as alendronate (Fosamax®), risedronate (Actonel®), etidronate (Didronel®), ibandronate (Boniva®), pamidronate (Aredia®) or calcitonin are recommended, especially for postmenopausal women and those on high-dose glucocorticoids. Exercise — Physical therapy and rehabilitation should begin soon after the diagnosis of dermatomyositis or polymyositis to prevent contractures (shortening of the muscle that can limit joint motion). Patients who become bed or chair bound should move or be repositioned frequently to avoid pressure sores. Avoidance of sunlight – Patients with dermatomyositis and rash should protect themselves from the sun with sunscreen or by sitting in a shaded area. Preventing aspiration — Patients who have difficulty swallowing must take care to avoid inhaling (aspirating) foods and drinks. This may be done by elevating the head, using thickened drinks, or in severe cases, by placing a feeding tube. Prognosis — The severity of disease in dermatomyositis and polymyositis is highly variable, ranging from mild weakness that responds well with treatment to a rapid progression of symptoms that is unresponsive to all treatments. Patients may spontaneously improve without treatment, although it is not known how often this occurs. Answered by Ingeborg Kappa 1 year ago.


What should not be taken with Ibuprofen (Children's Motrin)?
What shouldn't you take? What reacts with it? Thanks! Asked by Lottie Arnoldy 1 year ago.

When taking Ibuprofen (Children's Motrin), you should not be taking bisphosphonates such as Didronel, and Aredia, because it can cause increased risk of gastric ulceration. It should also not be taken with anti-coagulants because it may cause bleeding, and there is also an increased risk of bleeding with concurrent use of ginko biloba.
