Re: New User for Forteo hopefully
Hi and Welcome,
I'm sorry to hear you have compression fractures in the T spine. I have some also but it rarely causes me pain. I've got lower back pain though. I'm not sure if depression is a side effect of Forteo but if you are concerned you can all the Eli Lilly or look online. You might want to have your doctor change your medication for depression before you start on Forteo so your not starting two new medications at the same time.
Eli Lilly has a customer care program for those without insurance or the income to pay for the pens, which are very expensive. I hope you can get this medication paid for. Let us know.
