There are many medications available to treat osteoporosis and reduce the risk of fracture. They fall into two basic categories: antiresorptives and anabolics. Throughout life, we lose old bone and form new bone, called bone remodeling. Antiresorptive drugs work by slowing the resorption or breakdown part of remodeling. Anabolics work by stimulating the formation part of the process. More bone is formed than is taken away. The result is stronger bone that is less likely to break.
