Discussions that mention tylenol

Osteoporosis board


Hi, I'm new on this message board and also on using Forteo. It's not quite 3 months yet. I have experienced some of the spare tire problem that many of the others have written about, but I started out giving the injection in the stomach, but quickly moved to the thigh. The belly area is very senitive and I have a problem with an old scar from a surgery 15 yrs ago, with lots of scar tissue. I'm having a problem with bloating, not every day and also with my knees hurting. I called the Dr's office and spoke to one of nurses who said they had not had anyone complain of this problem. Do they not want to discuss any problem. She said the Dr. said take Tylenol for the pain and let them know if it doesn't go away. Also advised me to drink lots of water. Has anyone else had the knee problem? Can't say that I'm having lots of leg cramps. Just curious and have enjoyed reading the others post. Praying this medication helps me, as I had been on Fosamax 7 yrs and only gotten worse.
When do you have first blood test or scans? Nurse said they would see me when I come for yearly exam for well woman check. Though that was strange and that they would want to check before that time.

Hi Sassiesmom,

I am also a relative newbie to this list and have been on Forteo for about 2 months now. I don't really think that I have any or much int the way of side effects. At first I felt a little wierd(er) (-: after taking the shot but now I don't really feel much of anything when I talke it or afterwards.

I rotate my shots, going in circles shall we say from the lt. and rt. thigh to the rt. and then lt. abdominal area. I haven't seen any difference really since I noticed weight change and also abdominal changes especially the past couple of years ( before taking the Forteo). I think there are many reasons for the changes, at least in me (lack of the proper exercise, menopause, my metabolic rate going down the tubes, etc. Time will tell I think!!

It is hard to tell if I have any or many cramps and pain since I also have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain.. They all blend together (-: !!!

I too hope and pray that this med helps me as the Fosomax for a couple of years did not help me either.

Blessings,

Marilyn :) :wave:
