Discussions that mention zoledronic

Osteoporosis board

I'm reading that zoledronic acid is for post menopausal women.. will they prescribe it to women who are in child bearing years?

It *is* FDA approved? I didn't know that! I've read on here before some of you are getting the injections. I want in if my scans come back lower this year! I won't take the oral alternatives because of my sister's reactions to it.

What ever happened to the patch? Is anyone using that? Is it approved?
Hi Zoe, Zoledronic acid is a highly potent bisphosphonate and is not recommended for women in child bearing years, as it can be hazardous to the fetus.
