Osteoporosis Q & A
Inquiring about Zoledronic Acid. Is it FDA approved and can I ask my doctor and insurance about beginning this once yearly? I am 60 years of age and diagnosed with osteoporosis for about 5 years now. Currently taking Actonel once weekly.
Can Evoxac help cure dry eyes? I have severe dry eyes and blephorospasms. I read that Evoxac can help cure dry eyes. Is this true?
Can Actonel be causing my severe eye blephorospasms, blepharitis and dry eye? My lacrimal glands are swollen and I can’t keep tears in my eyes. I’m on minocycline, restasis, optiva and genteal gel. Recently I had botox injections around my eye to relieve the blephorospasms. I also have had Sarcoidosis for 12 years. I take Flovent inhaler spray once per day for my lungs.
What are the pro’s and cons of Actonel versus Boniva. Can I get as good of results with Boniva?
If once a month Boniva is 150 mg how can it be comparable to Fosamax, which is approximately 70mg a week,I believe.70 mg times 4 or 5 weeks = 280/350 mg?
What are the pros and cons of taking one over the other?
What is ostopenia?
My dad was in a car wreck July 10, and was diagnosed with a fractured vertebra. He recently has been told he would need a new procedure to correct the problem. He will be having the balloon procedure done. With the surgery being delayed for 3 months, will the success rate be higher or lower?
I am a 42 year old male and have been told I have osteoporosis. My T-scores are -1.6 in L1, -2.3 in L2, -2.9 in L3, -3.5 in L4 and L2-L4 -2.9. I also have ostepenia in my left femur (-1.2). Several years ago I had a fusion at C6-C7 after a sneeze ruptured my disk. I also have diagnosed arthritis and fibromyalgia. My blood work is negative. I don’t understand why this is happening to me. My Dr. has put me on Fosomax but we don’t know why this is occuring. Should I just take the fosomax and see what happens or should further testing be done to determine why I have these problems? I’m concerned that something else is occuring in my body. What do you suggest?
