Good Morning !


Has someone received EVENITY injection for osteoporosis treatment?


My wife has taken Fosamax for 5 years and received Reclast infusion for 2 years (one dose per year). Now, her lumbar spine with T score -3.5, so a specialist suggested my wife to receive EVENITY injection for another year (one injection per month).


Since EVENITY is relative new drug,we do not know whether it is good for a triple negative BC patient,so we come to here to look for suggestions.


Thanks a lot for any help!

PS: On 3/3/2014, my wife was diagnosed Triple-negative, invasive ductal carcinoma in left breast with one Axillary Lymph Node positive (stage 2b, grade 3 breast cancer (T2b (2.3 cm), N1, M0)) at MD Anderson, Houston, TX. Neo-Adjuvant chemo: 12 weekly Taxol and 4 triple weekly FAC. Then having the surgery for modified radical Mastectomy (Left) and Axillary Lymph Node Dissection (Left) on 9/26/2014. After surgery, the pathologic stage based on pathology material is T1a (0.3 x 0.3 cm), N0, M0, i.e., no cancer cell in lymph nodes.

    math666, did the specialist mention Prolia or Forteo as possibilities? They've been FDA approved for over a dozen years.

    Good Morning, hersheykiss.

    Yes, the specialist did mention Forteo for daily self injection for one year, but my wife deny it.

    I would be curious to know if it’s FDA approved too. I have osteoporosis and have taken Boniva+ calcium tablets for years. My internist is pushing Prolia but my numbers don’t warrant changing at this time. Prolia is expensive and not without side effects. I have zero SEs with Boniva. Fosamex can cause dental issues and I already have those so can’t take that.

    Also, do check out the possible side effects of that drug. Scary

    On 4/9/2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Evenity (romosozumab-aqqg) to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women at high risk of breaking a bone.

    EVENITY® is the first and only osteoporosis treatment that

    WORKS IN TWO WAYS


    Only EVENITY® works two ways: it works with your body's natural ability to build new bone and, to a lesser extent, slow down bone loss.


    Commonly prescribed osteoporosis treatments work in one of two ways:

    antiresorptives slow down bone loss, while anabolics help to stimulate bone formation.
