Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Just one last question:

Do you take a medication for osteoporosis or other bone disease, such as alendronate (Fosamax), risedronate (Actonel), ibandronate (Boniva), or the intravenous medication zoledronic acid (Zometa or Reclast)?
