Is my treatment plan working?

How can I tell if the medicine is working?

Did you know?

Your healthcare provider will keep track of your progress by periodically testing your bone density and sometimes checking your blood and urine to see how your medicine is affecting you. Depending on the severity of your osteoporosis, your fracture risk, and how your body is responding, your healthcare provider may decide to switch you from one medication to another. This is based on research and follows a careful plan, known as treatment sequencing, to make sure your bones remain protected. Stick with your follow-up appointments to discuss your progress and medication options.
