Anyone Use Micalcin?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with osteoporosis 4 months before discovering I have celiac disease. I took Boniva for 3 months and had a bad reaction. At the time the Dr. discovered my celiac disease she also discovered a large hiatal hernia so Boniva, Fosamax, etc. is now forbidden. I am only taking calcium, Vit D and magnesium at this point, but my GP wants me to go on Miacalcin so I don't lose anymore bone mass before I begin to heal and absorb calcium again. Has anyone had any experience with this, also? Thanks for your help.

I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis at age 25. I took fosamax for about 6 years. I also took Miacalcin for about a year. For that year I was taking both fosamax and miacalcin. I didn't have any problem with either drug. The only thing with the miacalcin was that it made my nose run a bit when I first started taking it (that went away, though). And you have to remember which nostril you are supposed to use because you switch every day. :)

Unfortunately, I have not been back to see if my bone mass has increased. I probably should do that. I am not taking either drug any more.

Hi Cruelshoes! Thanks for the info. I'm going to give it a try. The dr. said there are no side effects, so I guess it can't hurt since the oral drugs are no good for me.
