Stay Alert for Mix-Ups With Meds for Treating Osteoporosis
The new Rx med, Tymlos (TIM-lohs), will put focus on helping postmenopausal women get the right med to treat osteoporosis.
Bisphosphonates (alendronate, etc) are usually first-line.
Stay alert for mix-ups. Actonel can easily be mistaken for Actos...Boniva for Binosto...or risedronate for risperidone.
