Additional Information
Storage

Osteoporosis:

  • Osteoporosis is a disease that involves the thinning and weakening of the bones and is common in women after the menopause but can also occur in men
  • At the menopause, a woman’s ovaries stop producing the female hormone oestrogen, which helps keep bones healthy. Following the menopause bone loss occurs, bones become weaker and break more easily
  • Osteoporosis could also occur in men and women because of the long term use of steroids, which can affect the strength of bones

Paget’s disease of the bone

  • It is normal that old bone is removed and is replaced with new bone material. This process is called remodeling
  • In Paget’s disease, bone remodeling is too rapid and new bone is formed in a disordered fashion, which makes it weaker than normal. If the disease is not treated, bones may become deformed and painful and may break
  • Keep this medicine out of reach of children
  • Do not use this medicine after the expiry date
  • Store at room temperature (15-25ºC)
