What are the pros and cons of Foster and is it prescribed for ostopenia?

Hi Labradog, usually, Forsteo (teriparitide) is only prescribed in England if you are over 65 with one fracture or under 65 with two fractures - and even then it is at the discretion of the consultant. I have had three confirmed OP fractures and initially my consultant was going to prescribe the bisphosphonate infusion but I asked for teriparitide instead, which he agreed to - most likely because my BMD is very low and risk of further fracture high. So I think it's highly unlikely you would be prescribed Forsteo at this time.
