for about 2 yrs I took calcitonin salmon, then my drug supplier changed and they send this Miacalin. It smells absolutely terrible. It is like shooting old garbage up your nose.

Now only use this along with caltrate plus and vitamin D. My osteoporosis is now slowly getting progressivly wo ... Show Full Comment
