One treatment that is downright inconvenient is the treatment for osteoporosis. Why? Because it requires one to sit up or stand for at least thirty minutes after taking the pill. Besides, it can also come with a nasty side effect – a chronic heartburn.
However, an alternative to that is a liquid medicine that is infused into the vein. You’ll have to get this done once a year at the hospital or doctor’s office which normally takes about 15 minutes. The bone takes up the med thus, the once a year frequency. You still need daily doses of calcium and vitamin D, though.
