I'm 28 years old. I have osteopenia and osteoporosis. But I also have Autoimmune thyroiditis. Is it safe for me to use Aclasta?
Hi AlexKosolapova -
As far as I can tell, yes... it is safe for you to take. What are you taking for thyroid support? Just curious on that one...
In the material I have read, I do not see precautions that warn against taking it with your other condition. That is also a conversation though that you should have with the prescribing doctor because they know you a lot better. They also know about your history, which I don't know.
What I read as precautions, I have copied for you below and in "quotes":
"Appropriate hydration is important prior to administration & adequate calcium and vitamin D intake prior to Aclasta therapy in patients with preexisting hypocalcaemia, and for 10 days following Aclasta in patients with Paget's disease of the bone. Monitor for other mineral metabolism disorders."
So that gives you some insight here and hope that helps answer your question. But jurisprudence would suggest that you talk with your doctor about any concerns you have about any other medications you might be taking for any other conditions you are also dealing with.
I would love to here back from you and hope this has helped you.
