Bonivadoes boniva work better than miacalcin?
Asked by Reatha Vimont 1 year ago.

These drugs work entirely different. Boniva, which is in a class of drugs called bisphosphonates, has a very easy to follow regimen of 1 tablet per month. The bisphosphonates have a lot of research that demonstrates their effectiveness, and some studies show that drugs like Boniva are more effective at increasing bone density than Miacalcin. Miacalcin may be more appropriate for patients who are unable to tolerate a bisphosphonate. Of course, this is a decision that only you and your physician can determine. Also, don't forget that calcium supplementation and weight bearing exercise are also important for maintaining bone mass. I have included a link below to an abstract that discusses this much more indepth. Answered by Jason Frisino 1 year ago.


What is it about Miacalcin that causes these side effects?
I had been taking Miacalcin for osteoporosis for two to three months when a previuosly mild backache became very painful and my fatigue seemed to increase. The pharmacist said that both these symptoms could be due to Miacalcin. Asked by Monty Colinger 1 year ago.

Your pharmacist is right. Moreover, to understand about it, one should know that our body is made up of several natural chemicals. As and when it reduces in our body due to various reasons, we starts suffering from different type of diseases. The natural method of strengthening those chemicals are food we take which recover one's health. Every medicines, including Miacalcin is not natural chemical. It is synthetically or artificially made. Hence when we take any synthetic chemicals for longer period, it gives side effects. Better if you leave it immediately and start doing some light exercises for your backache. Answered by Everette Ebrahimi 1 year ago.

What are alternative things to take instead of those perscription medications for osteoporosis?
I am going to stop taking Fosamax and Miacalcin for my osteoporosis and want to take something that is safer Asked by Jeffrey Hayn 1 year ago.

No alternative will be nearly as effective. Good luck! Answered by Mignon Reamy 1 year ago.

The part that is the most misunderstood about bone health is that it's not so much the type of Calcium or the amount of Calcium (by that, I mean taking too much is a bad thing) that's important, but it's actually what's taken WITH the Calcium to help it's absorption into the bones that is the most important. In and of itself, the human body doesn't absorb Calcium very efficiently into the bones, so it needs other things to help that absorption. The main things that help are Magnesium, Vitamins D and K, Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Boron, Strontium, Silica, Ipriflavone, some aspects of Soy (primarily the isoflavones), and some of the general vitamins (A, C, E, and the B vitamins play a small role because they help your body work more efficiently in general). Fosamax and other similar drugs help the absorption of Calcium in a similar way, but they only take a small aspect of what helps the Calcium absorb into your bones without the other balancing aspects that natural products provide, which is what gives the side effects. Answered by Caron Stilwell 1 year ago.

Few years ago, a study was conducted to determine what was more effective for osteoporosis... fosamax, calcium, both of them, or just exercise. Guess which one was the most effective? Exercise alone provided far more benefit than drugs with calcium supplements combined. Bones don't get stronger unless you put some kind of stress to it. Exercise is the best way to do it and far cheaper than drugs. So, start doing some exercise. Whether it's from the bed, wheelchair, or anywhere, anyone can do exercise. Start off with light exercise, like walking, or swimming. Or check your community, some offer excellent programs like line dancing. Answered by Tabetha Fida 1 year ago.

You should alkalize your body to prevent further bone loss by eating lots of vegetables and make sure you are taking a quality calcium/magnesium/vitamin D/boron and other trace minerals supplement.

I have a great supplement suggestion for you. It is a brand new product called SolarCal-D. This contains high grade coral calcium, the proper amount of magnesium to help your body absorb the calcium, and Vitamin D, which is known to prevent breast cancer in women.

noo i would say not .. i think it would not contain any estrogens. i would ask doctor about Miacalcin...i think it would suit you better... fosemax has a tendency to tire the cra=p out of you.. you'll feel sick to your stomach and you'll get burning sensation all over your body.. i wouldnt take that...but im not your doctor so i cant say whats wrong with you...but ask him about Calcitonin and Miacalcin.. hope i gave you some good info.. Stay Healthy, Paul Answered by Katelyn Thielemann 1 year ago.

Fosamax is not estrogens and does not carry the associated risks or benefits of estrogen as estrogen is a hormone replacement therapy. Fosamax D = Fosamax plus vitamin D. However, vitamin D should be taken daily My advice is that you contact a pharmacist or your Dr for additional clarification.

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 Charleen Christopher 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 Laurence Cozier 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 Nikia Rueck 1 year ago.

your 26 with osteoporosis !! That is shocking it might be a wrong diagnosis Answered by Chanda Mikrut 1 year ago.


Does fosamax plus D 70 mg have estrogen?
i had a bone scan and was told my bones were strong like a younger person, i am 57 years old,but the doctor gave me a prescription for fosamax plus d anyway. i was told it contains estrogen replacement also, is this true? Asked by William Czachorowski 1 year ago.

noo i would say not .. i think it would not contain any estrogens. i would ask doctor about Miacalcin...i think it would suit you better... fosemax has a tendency to tire the cra=p out of you.. you'll feel sick to your stomach and you'll get burning sensation all over your body.. i wouldnt take that...but im not your doctor so i cant say whats wrong with you...but ask him about Calcitonin and Miacalcin.. hope i gave you some good info.. Stay Healthy, Paul Answered by Lolita Sear 1 year ago.

Fosamax is not estrogens and does not carry the associated risks or benefits of estrogen as estrogen is a hormone replacement therapy. Fosamax D = Fosamax plus vitamin D. However, vitamin D should be taken daily My advice is that you contact a pharmacist or your Dr for additional clarification. For future reference you can contact CanAmericaDrugs (www.canamericadrugs.com) toll free at 1-866-982-9530 and obtain free pharmacists counseling from 8AM - 5:30PM [CST].

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 Julius Croyle 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 Tanja Cameron 1 year ago.


Osteoporosis: Any idea what can induce dramatic urinary calcium loss?
My mother has been into osteoporosis treatment, after which she has seen some pretty comforting results. Lately, however, she has been experiencing a dramatic increase in urinary calcium loss, which has caused her to panic. Se has also been receiving thyroxine (i doubt this may be a factor though).
