Question Depression with Forteo?

I am in my fourth week of forteo injections. I am experiencing the kind of depression that produces this effect: Two times last week, I dressed my best for two events, then sat, unable to make myself get up and go. I have also been very fatigued, and lack the ability to focus. Normally, I am pretty task oriented.

My last injection is tomorrow from this first pen; I am thinking about leaving it off for 2 weeks and see if the "missing parts" return.

Any opinions helpful.

Re: Depression with Forteo?

I'm sorry to hear that the Forteo is causing you depression. I haven't had any side effects at all. Have you called your doctor? It might be a good idea. I hope you start feeling better.

Re: Depression with Forteo?

I found myself in the same situation. But I think it was because I did not want to be on
any drug, and forteo is called the back box (cancer)???? So after two months I stopped taking it and have been doing weight bearing exercise and walk up to 50 miles a week.
I feel much better, go with your gut feelings. My t-scores went up one whole point, so I will just keep on with what I have been doing. Good Luck

Re: Depression with Forteo?

I am on Forteo for 5 + months, since starting I have depression, leg aches that prevent going to sleep, major insomnia up every two hours, and frequent Hot flashes. All the sites are saying that only a few % of people are having these systems. I suspect this is widespread.

I have a call in to my Doctor, but the choices are : continue or stop. I wish I could help us all but there does not seem to be any alternatives.(sounds depressed )
Just know there are others who have the same situations.
