I have been taking methylprednisolone for nine years, and it seems to be the most effective treatment for my arthropathy. But now, I have osteoporosis, and was treated with Reclast IV a year ago. For a couple of months after the Reclast, I had more joint and muscle pain, which was attributed to the Reclast. I have also are read that Reclast can cause a fractured femur. So my question is, can anyone recommend another treatment for osteoporosis other than bisphosphonates, considering that I am probably going to remain on the methylprednisolone long term? I already take vitamin D, zinc, and calcium citrate.
