I just started Forteo because all of the other bone pill & spays just didn't work for me. This is my last Chance! If anyone out there has any experience with Forteo, would love to hear from you. nI began taking it 12/9/10, and so far no side effects to speak of. Thanks for your input
I am on my second pen and yes i have side affects. the most prominent of which is insomnia and without sleeping pills i dont sleep. and the scarey part is that when i phoned the forteo company i was told that the side affects can come and go while on the treatment. but regardless it is better than the alternative.

My doc advised me to start this drug. (Forteo) I'm dubious. Dont want to be experimented on. 12 years on other drugs turned out not to be effective (Miacalcin nasal spray). Now they are recommending stopping these drugs after 5 years to give your body a "break". As I understand it, Forteo is the first drug to "build new bone" whereas all the other meds "slow the shedding of OLD bone". Every drug you take has a reaction in your body. At 73, I think if I had taken supplements of calcium, vitamin D, low dose estrogen, exercised properly... I might not be in this situation. I would love to hear how you are doing with Forteo as time goes by, how your doc is monitoring you etc., so please keep posting and let us know. Thanks - good luck and God bless.
