 2  Osteoporosis I've been using a nasal spray for over five years. Broke a bone last year, had full body x-ray that showed no improvement in bone density. This after also taking calcium. Really disappointed.Don't know whether to try anything else. F 70

 5  osteoporosis None at all. I've taken both Fortical and the generic Calcitonin Salmon and have not experienced any side effects. The Fortical smelled a little pungent, but I got used to it. For some reason the generic doesn't have that smell. I am very relieved to find a medication that I can tolerate so well. Hopefully it will help with the bone loss. F 55 2 months

FORTICAL  (CALCITONIN SALMON RECOMBINANT):  This medication is used to treat brittle bone disease (osteoporosis) in women who are at least 5 years past "the change of life" (menopause). Calcitonin works by slowing bone loss to help maintain strong bones and reduce your risk of fractures. This product has been withdrawn from the Canadian market due to safety problems.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
