    I been using this drug for only 3 months. I have noticed periods of achey joint pain especially my hips. Drinking plenty of water and not missing my calcium seems to help. The only alternative for me is reclast and after reading the side effects, I think I will stay with forteo.

They want me to start taking Reclast--have rea ... Show Full Comment
