Client taking Forteo almost 2 years and having severe joint pain, dizziness, heartburn among other Forteo listed side effects. Pain pills give no relief. Very sure it is the Forteo, due to calcium elevation and other lab results (negative and positive). How long after Forteo discontinuation will she get relief?
How long does it take to get Forteo out of your system?

Lilly representative told me it takes about two hours for the medication to be eliminated from the body. I was totally incapacitated by the medication on a gradual administration basis. By the time I had been taking it for almost 2 years, became bedridden. Experienced pain all over my body and many other side effects. I am now improving since I stopped taking it, but not as quickly as told. However, I definitely noticed improvement after discontinuation!
I could not find a reliable source with the answer to your query, therefore I suggest you contact Eli Lilly.
The following info is from their website:
If you are a customer and have questions regarding Lilly products, please call The Lilly Answers Center at 1-800-LillyRx(1-800-545-5979). Health care providers should also call this number to request a visit from a Lilly sales representative.
