Major drug therapies now exist for treating osteoporosis. There are two types of agents available for treating osteoporosis.
1. Antiresorptive Agents. Antiresorptives include bisphosphonates (eg zoledronic acid), hormone replacement therapy, SERMs, and calcitonin.
2 Anabolic, or Bone-Forming, Agents. The primary anabolic agent is low-dose parathyroid hormone (PHT), which is administered as injections.

The link below covers each treatment and discusses the risks and benefits of each.

At present the biophosphonates are the first choice for most women. Ultimately it will be up to you and your doctor to decide which medicine will be best.
