I have initial stage osteoporosis. I tried to discontinue Qvar, but developed severe bronchitis. Now I'm back on Qvar 40mcg, 2 puffs/2x/day. I can usually go to 2 puffs/day for maintenance. My doctor PA said I should think of Qvar as I do my BP meds-take for life. I'd appreciate advice re risk for osteoporosis if I stay on Qvar long term. I'm 66, woman, petite build with strong family history of osteoporosis.
I to have osteoporosis, and have to use a steroid, its a shame you can't help one problem because of creating another, they want me to take the bone pills I said no all they do is make your bone's brittle and break like tooth picks, I take caltrate * D and D3, I am also on it for life twice a day, sure wish I knew something that would help us more, I reaching everyday, other than hormone 's that will hold your bone that's all I've learned so far, hope I was of some help to you.
