New to Atelvia
miraclegirl1977 posted:
I'm 55 yrs old, weigh about 72 lbs on a good day. I've been on Fosomax and Boniva for close to 17+ yrs, with only a 1 yr break. Right now I'm -4 and my Physician is putting me on Atelvia. They had wanted to give me the injection every 6 months but my insurance wouldn't cover it. After being on Boniva for over 5 yrs, I had an allergic reaction to it and took myself off of it. My Dentist wasn't happy to hear I was on Bisphosphonate because of the death of the jaw bone issue. Last year I begin having TMJ issues and so I once again took myself off of them. My Physician said because of my thyroid issues and because I'm small - 4 '8 that I needed the medication. What is a girl supposed to do!?!! Can you share your experience regarding Atelvia with me and the group? Thanks!
