Hello Susan, & welcome to the site. I am confused by your question. Are you looking to take forteo for you hypoparathyroidism ? Is is a drug made for the condition of sever osteoporosis. I personally take it & it is a synthetic hormone made from thyroid & pituatary hormone. It isn't to my knowledge used for your condition. Is this what you have asked? I do know they had to test my thyroid before I started on this drug, & it can have very bad side effects of osteosarcoma. Others have complained about nausea, burning etc... I have not had any side effects at all. I guess before I go on, I need a better answer to your question. Do you have osteoporosis that the biophosphates have not helped? I will try to answer your question if I can if you will give me more info...
