Talking to Your Doctor
Talking to your doctor about osteoporosis, your fracture risk, and treatment options is an important part of partnering with your physician to manage your bone health.
Being able to openly discuss your options with your physician will help ensure that you’re getting a treatment plan that is right for you. Complete the questionnaire to help start the conversation with your physician.
|Help Start the Conversation||
|Do you sometimes miss a dose or forget to take your osteoporosis medication?|
|Are you experiencing any side effects with your current medication?|
|Are you dissatisfied with your current medication?|
|Are you on any other medications that may affect your treatment?|
|Have you lost more than 2 cm (¾ inches) in height since starting your current treatment?|
|Have you broken a bone since starting your current treatment?|
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, talk to your doctor. Being able to openly discuss your options will ensure you’re getting a treatment plan that suits you.
