EZorb Success and Dosage Question

I've been on EZorb for over a year now. My recent DEXA scan showed great success. T-score for L1-L4 improved from -2.7 to -2.3 and from -3.1 to -2.8 for the left hip.

I had taken the recommended higher dosage for the past year. Now that my bone density has improved... and I'm not immune to the recent financial turmoil, I'm wondering if I should keep up the dosage or I can reduce to the lower maintenance dose. If so, will I still be able to see increase, or at least no change?

I would really appreciate it if anyone who has done so give me some advice. Money is an issue but bones are obviously more important.

Gloria

I also have had great success with Ezorb for the past 3 years and I pretty much followed their dosing suggestions on the bottle; however, I think I prolonged the initial dose for about 3 months (maybe 6) but then went on maintenance. My dexa scans continued to show improvement. I am going to have another (dexa) in March. I think the lowest dosage you can take (of anything) and still maintain the results you want, is always preferable, not to mention the financial relief.

Re: EZorb Success and Dosage Question

Here's my story with Ezorb. In January 2006 I had a repeat bone scan that I had in 2004. Dr. says your number is going down. He only quoted one number which was -l.4 and previous was -1.2. He wanted me to take Fosamax which I refused. I then started Ezorb, only maintenace dose,since I only had osteopenia. In January 2008 I was tested with these numbers: spine -0.9 and femmer -0.8. Dr. says I am now in normal range and keep doing whatever I'm doing.

Talking Re: EZorb Success and Dosage Question

Thank you so much for your reply! Now I feel more comfortable cutting down dosage. I'll go back up when my financial situation improves.

Thanks again,
Gloria
