Forteo ( skipping a few injections ???)

Does any one know if it would hurt any thing to not take this medication for 7days in a row and then go back on it. Do you think it would be like starting all over again ?

Re: Forteo ( skipping a few injections ???)

I can only speak for myself on this. I had to stop the Forteo while I was in the hospital for over 2 weeks for my last 2 spine surgeries. I resumed when I got home with no apparent loss of effect. The Forteo, in fact, greatly aided the healing/fusion process yielding much better results than either the surgeon or I expected.
Good luck to you!

Thank you for your post. I hope you are doing good after having to have back surgeries.

Thanks again

I don't think missing a few days will hurt your progress. I do take my pen with me whenever possible. I reuse the ice packs and cooler sent to me by the pharmacy and pack it like pharmacy sent it to me. I also bought a thermometer to make sure the temperature of hotel refrigerators won't freeze the pen.
