Forteo is a medicine that is given for Osteoporsis. I need to take a shot in my belly every day for 2 long years. After reading the side effects I told my Doctor I need to think about it. After asking other women who took it, the responses were negative. No benefit was achieved.
I need some input from the wonderful women on this site to help me with my decision. Any feedbacks are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks Pat
I appreciate the websites. I still am not sure about the shot a day thing for 2 years.
Have a great weekend.

Hi paced2live27 - Thanks for bringing your question and I hope you hear from women who've used this drug.

There are several threads related to drugs prescribed for this, including Forteo and Fosamax, which may interest you.

Hope this helps! Pat
