I have had NO side effects. I inject myself before bed, so if there are side effects, I don't notice them. This is the easiest self-injectable I have ever used!

This drug causes an extreme reaction in my 89 year old mother. Severe pain in her jaw and arms, flushing and heat in the face, dizziness for an hour or more after the shot. She has always had low BP but now even that is unpredictable and can be seriously high on any given day.

I was diagnosed with severe osteoporosis in my spine about 4 years ago. Started Tymlos 2 years ago at a -3.5 in spine. After 2 years and tolerating the medication very well I am thrilled to say my t-score has improved to -2.1!! No more osteoporosis and a 15% improvement in bone density. I am very pleased with my results but worked very hard to get tons of calcium in my diet and exercised 5 days a week. Dont give up but you have to work to get good results.

It’s easy to do but no where on the side effects do I see why I get such a bad chest tightening. However, all side effects only last about an hour so I give myself a shot an hour before bed. Only been doing it for a month so we’ll see.

I do have about a two hour increase in heart rate but find if I hydrate a lot before using, it helps that. Had 2 fractures and was still having microfractures prior to taking. From that I was in a lot of pain but within a month of taking Tymlos, I felt stronger with much less pain, more like my old self again.

The drug is very easy to use. I have only been using it for 4 months, so do not know if it is effective. My biggest complaint is that it causes rapid heart rate and exhaustion. I tried taking before bed, but my heart beats very hard and I get ringing in my ears. I feel bad for the rest of the day after the shot, so morning is out. Iâ??ve decided around 6:00 pm is the best time, although using it at all has made be feel weak and tired. Hopefully, it will work.
