User Comments:


For Osteoporosis “I started on Forteo Jan 2018, 4 days into the injections I started hurting all over. My ankles, feet, legs, knees, on up the body. Keeping me up at night, during the day at work I’m miserable. I’m hoping this comes to a stop soon!”

For Osteoporosis “Second time on this website updating you all on my Forteo experience .Going on my second year now still have stomach weight gain my doctor says has nothing to do with Forteo. I exercise every day, diet consists of water , a hand full of cheerios am, no lunch, 1/2 salad pm, thats it! I’m a male 58 years old. My Dr. wrong all day long. My stomach weight gain wont stop ,they wont acknowledge your side effect unless its on lillys “list” period. Got depression , cramps , weight gain, etc but Prescribing Dr. can’t or just won’t acknowledge anything. Forteo does its job though.”

For Osteoporosis “I have had the leg pain and I am losing hair. Stomach seems swollen and has increased in size. Have not had a bone scan yet… insurance will only pay for one a year…in July 2017 it was -3.4. Was in extreme pain because of L-3,4,5, and S-1 spinal deterioration. Had a spinal block in Sept 2017 and it did not seem to work. Started Forteo also in Sept. Then Nov. 1st my pain stopped. Don’t know if the block started working or the Forteo had something to do with this. I have received help paying for this drug from CVS.”

For Osteoporosis “After completion of injections and getting a scan, my bone density did increase quite a bit. However, within 3 years, they reverted right back to where they were before the Forteo – even worse. I wouldn’t recommend it for that reason.”
