Forteo for Osteoporosis

Teriparatide (Forteo) is a synthetic version of the human parathyroid hormone, which
helps to regulate calcium metabolism. It promotes the growth of new bone, while
other osteoporosis medications improve bone density by inhibiting bone resorption, or
breakdown. It is the only osteoporosis medicine approved by the FDA that rebuilds
bone.
Forteo should be used only in men with osteoporosis and postmenopausal women.

How is Forteo Taken?
Teriparatide (Forteo) is self-injected into the skin. Because long-term safety is not yet
established, it is only FDA-approved for 24 months of use. It reduces spine fractures in
women with known osteoporosis, but reduction of hip fracture risk is currently
unproven.
Who Should Take Forteo?
Men who have osteoporosis and postmenopausal women can take Forteo.

Forteo is not used to prevent osteoporosis or to treat mild osteoporosis.
This drug should be used if you've had at least one bone fracture due to thinning bones,
you are at high risk of fractures, or you haven't responded to other osteoporosis
therapies.

What Are the Side Effects of Forteo?
Forteo's side effects may include:
Itching, swelling, redness at injection site
Back spasms
Depression
Leg cramps
Heartburn


Forteo is part of the Parathyroid Hormones class and treats Osteoporosis. Parathyroid
hormones are used to treat osteoporosis. They work by strengthening the bones and
preventing breakage. Forteo is only available as a brand name drug.


Teriparatide - Teriparatide is a man-made form of a hormone called parathyroid that
exists naturally in the body. Teriparatide increases bone density and increases bone
strength to help prevent fractures.
Teriparatide is used to treat osteoporosis in men and women who have a high risk of bone
fracture.
