Yes, I have slight osteoporosis. I have had a Dexa scan. I am on Perindopril 8mg per day for blood pressure. I have replied to the information. Please reply
Are you on anything for your osteoporosis?
You should be on bisphosphonates for your osteoporosis.
Medications included in this group include:
Alendronate, Residronate, Ibandronate, Zolidronic acid
Other medications that can be used include strontium, tereparatide
These medications help strengthen your bones and reduce the incidence of fractures.
Plus you should also be on calcium and vitamin D supplements
For the pain and inflammation you should take medications like Motrin or Aleve.
This will help reduce the inflammation.
Motrin contains ibuprofen (you can use any brand), Aleve contains naproxen sodium, you can use any brand in this.
Let me know if you have more questions.
