  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for osteopenia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Monthly
Advice & Tips: I couldn't afford this, so was dependent on samples from Dr, which became unavailable. I took it for a year, and as far as I know, it made no diff between annual bone scans. It was hard to remember to take it and I was on a monthly dose.
