Advice & Tips: Bone density test 2 years ago was good, but required to change meds. After 2 years on this med at this dose, I have reverted to the osteoporosis levels I had before beginning any med for osteoporosis. In short, for me, this med at this dose was useless in protecting me from bone loss.
