For Osteoporosis: "compression fracture of the spine. healed up in half the time. Even tho I have osteo p, I stopped after 5 weeks because I was leery of the potential cancer scare, which, by the way the crimp doesn't tell you which kind. [?????} It does work, and I had no side effects until week 5 when I developed back pain unrelated to fracture. I stopped using and it went away."

For Osteoporosis: "I had severe pains in legs, hands and all the joints. Even walking became difficult, getting up after sitting for some time was worse. Was prescribed calcitonin nasal spray with vit D and calcium oral supplements with revidec and vit d injection every week. Since the day I had this spray, my stomach is very upset. I have diarrhoea with abdominal cramps and frequent urination problem. I'm going to ask doctor to change medication as I'm feeling very weak. I have also developed severe pain in one leg joint in which I had broken bone 20 yrs back. It never pained so much before."

For Osteoporosis: "I have very flat feet. I was told my ankles would be the first to go. December 2015 my ankle just broke. The doctor said my bones were just hollow and fragile it was very hard just to set my leg. I started on the medicine and calcium and vitamin D I've had no problems with it. I also broke my arm from falling from the crutches. I was quite a mess my bones have healed well I have been on the medicine almost a year I don't know how much longer I should take it but if it's fixing my bones I'm going to take it as long as I need to"

For Osteoporosis: "Seems to have helped back pain. My nose runs water often and sometimes bleeds all day, one side at a time. Scared about the cancer threat though ... had breast cancer about 14 years ago."

Miacalcin (calcitonin) for Osteoporosis: "I had a terrible supposedly rare reaction to the protein in this medication. Every joint in my body was swollen and so painful that I couldn't even stand a sheet touching me. It took about 5 days for the symptoms to recede."
