Anybody use Forteo?
debs_bears posted:
Hi I was just diagnosed with osteoporosis thanks to a compression fracture of my L4. I have been on Vit D3 and Calcium supplements for years and still got osteoporosis.

I can not take most of the osteoporosis meds cause of my other health issues, I will be starting Forteo after the 18th.

If you are using or have used Forteo where do I buy the needles for the pen?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for replying, I called Forteo and they told me what to do so yesterday I picked them up from my pharmacy - also found out they are covered by my ins. if I had a script.

One would think that if you have to use a med that is injectable some kind of needle would have to go with it - nope the pharm. said I need a separate script for the med and the needles. Duh.
