Default New Osteoporosis drug, same old side effects

The FDA has approved a new injectable drug for Osteoporosis called Prolia. I see it has many of the same side effects as the existing drugs available for this condition.



I am not sure why another drug that is essentially the same as existing drugs for this condition is needed, but it has been approved non the less.

I think I will stick with Magnesium, Vitamin D, and Calcium. Just seems more logical to me.

Thumbs up

Yeah, I saw that too, Dan. Just another company trying to cash in on the
fears of osteoporosis, women especially.
I agree with you on your own preferred nutrients too. Now with Summer
and Sunshine again, getting good healthy natural Vit D will be easier too.
I got outside just to tie up/stake my tomato plants yesterday and got Sun
while doing so - 30 minutes at least.
