Discussions that mention pamidronate

Osteoporosis board

Well, after some 2 years on 100,000 IU of vitamin D weekly (scripted) my Endo has reduced the dosage to 50,000 IU weekly for the next 3 months and then we'll see where we are at again.

FINALLY my PTH is below 30 (10-65 reference range). My first Endo started me on the high vitamn D dosage and did not want me to start Forteo or IV pamidronate until my PTH went below 30 which it never did. My new Endo continued the high vitamin D dosage but started me on Forteo a year ago 19 August.
