Best tolerated bone med?
I already had Osteoporosis in my spine prior to BC but had maintained my scores for many years with low-dose estrogen. Well, that is now out the window and my latest bone density scan shows I lost 9% in one year (and I wasn't even on a full dose of Anastrozole during this time due to the trouble I am having tolerating it). Needless to say, I don't do well on ANY medication. It has been that way all my life. I take children's dosages when possible. But now, I can't run from this Osteoporosis any longer. I am needing to either try Reclast or Prolia very soon and am trying to determine which may have less side effects. My endocrinologist strongly prefers Reclast as he says Prolia only works while you take it then you have a strong rebound of bone loss afterward. Of course you can follow up with Reclast then. OR, I take Reclast now and hopefully maintain or even build a bit back. I tried Fosamax a few years ago and had digestive issues but am planning to give it one more try before going to the big guns. I highly doubt I will react any differently now but in my mind I have to give it one more try.
Any personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. I am scheduled to see my MO on Friday so am needing to discuss.
