I am new to this. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis in January and started taking Actonel. Since then I have had 2 stress fractures in my foot from Yoga. I have practiced Yoga for 5 years and I have never broken a bone before. I don't know if the Actonel is hurting or helping.
Has anyone had an experience of stress fratures starting after being put on Actonel. My doctor now wants to switch me to Forteo and I don't know what to do.
Sorry to hear you had stress fractures in your foot and while doing yoga. I used Forteo for two years, twice. It really helped build more bone. It's recommended for patients with fractures and to help prevent fractures. For me, it was worth doing. By the way, are your fractures healing yet? Do you know what your T score is?
My mother has severe osteoporosis. she is 66. We have started teriparatide (forteo). She is taking injections since a month and still a long to go. No problem at present. Let's hope everything goes fine.
Forteo is the costly but best way is patient responds to the medicine.
I advice you to take sun bath for at least 15 minutes a day and eat soya food.
