definitely there are many side effects to the medical drugs for osteoporosis. even the cancer supplements can get confusing. try all the natural healing foods for osteoporosis. And some healing recipes. How about sesame seeds on your bread or toast evey morning for the right amount of calcium? Check out his book:http://www.smashwords.com /profile/view/AMLucas

Nice Post,
Osteoporosis medication information, dosage, side effects, drug interactions, and warnings. Osteoporosis is a condition which is characterized by loss of the normal density of bone, resulting in brittle bones.

I am not a fan of pharmaceutical pain medications myself. As much as possible I try to treat my bodily pains with natural and traditional remedies. http://www.hiprecalllaw.com

Alternative methods are always good to know. Getting the right treatment which is best for your body is always a good way in avoiding having to file litigation such as a Fosamax lawsuit.

Nearly everyone may lean toward a non-medicated approach, although there are some cases like severe ones that may need the help of pharmaceuticals. While I am inclined to say that the old adage "prevention is better than cure" prevails, there are a lot of risk factors that we can't control like heredity. If osteoporosis has affected a family member, it's best to seek more information about the disease and know the things you can do to prevent it from happening to you or how to manage it if in any case you develop it. This site http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com helped my friend a great deal when his mom suffered from osteoporosis and fractures.

If Forteo is as effective as it claims I hope it is not as fraught with risks to use as Fosamax or other bisphosphonates. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com
