Bisphosphonates - How Long Should Osteoporosis Patients Take Them?

Ask Free Question
Bisphosphonates are the most commonly prescribed medicine for osteoporosis patients. This medicine is taken for no more than three to five years in a stretch. A doctor typically takes a call after this time period to find out whether it is suitable for the patient to continue the medicine for a longer time based on the individual risk factors.

Bisphosphonates contain four main ingredients namely Relcast, Fosamax, Boniva and Atelvia. This medicine slows the rate of bone loss and reduces the risk of fracture. This being said, there are some potential side effects of Bisphosphonates as well:

Problems in the jawbone: Consumption of Bisphosphonates can lead to a condition known as the osteonecrosis. This is a disease of the jawbone swelling, pain, and infection of the jawbone. The risk increases if a patient goes through an invasive surgery such as tooth extraction.
Thigh bone fracture: Prolonged intake of Bisphosphonates is believed to be a rare kind of thigh fracture known as the atypical femoral fracture. This is very similar to a stress fracture that causes subtle pain and worsens with time.
Stomach upset: Bisphosphonates intake can lead to oesophageal ulcers and sharp pain in the abdomen. It can also lead to mild fever lasting for a time period of 2-3 days along with upset stomach and body ache. This symptom mostly occurs when there is an irregularity in taking the medicine.

Choosing the right Bisphosphonates:
Drugs of the Bisphosphonates class are similar in nature. While some vary in terms of maintaining potency and bone density, the overall effectiveness of this drug is on the higher side. The common aim of this drug is to reduce the rate of fracture. The decision of choosing a drug over another depends on factors such as cost, preference, convenience and tenacity to stick to the exact dosage. Doctors often prescribe the monthly dosage at one go. The dosage can also be prescribed on a weekly basis depending on the patient s convenience.

The effect of Bisphosphonates:
Consumption of intravenous Bisphosphonates is considered to be the best medicine for fracture prevention. It is, therefore, very unlikely that a patient with osteoporosis will see additional improvement once he has taken Bisphosphonates for more than three years. This is perhaps the reason why most doctors suggest stopping this medicine after a patient consumes this for more than 3 years. Some other factors that a doctor considers while making this decision include past history of fractures, the age of the patient and the present bone density. If however, the bone density gets worse, a doctor can always restart Bisphosphonates until further improvement is witnessed. This again depends on the patient s medical condition at the time of check-up.

Lubricate your hair. Using a moisturizer greatly reduces the chances of split ends and promotes hair growth by diminishing breakage. However, to avoid overtly oily hair, use only a little moisturizer or try lubricating your hair a couple of hours before hair wash. Moisturized hair will attract dust if you go out.

Treating Arthritis Pain using Hot and Cold Therapy

FIASP, MD, MBBS
Pain Management Specialist
Ask Free Question
Arthritis is painful inflammation of the joints caused by excessive amounts of uric acid in the blood. This causes friction in the joints and may cause inflammation among muscle tissues. This is a very painful condition and may even be debilitating for many people. One of the methods used to provide relief from arthritis pain is the hot and cold therapy. Let s have a look at it in detail.

How does hot and cold treatment work s?

The hot and cold treatments work on various joints or muscle areas and are very effective in lowering pain as well as providing more mobility to the affected areas. Both these therapies try to enable the healing forces within the body and hence improve on the conditions which cause arthritis pain.

Heat treatment therapy: Heat therapy uses the principle of the expansion of material when warmer. If heat is applied to an affected area, it dilates the blood vessels, improves and stimulates blood circulation and also reduces muscle spasms. Heat treatments are very effective in soothing stiff joints and tired muscles as they encourage the flow of blood to the areas being treated. Some of the options available for heat treatments would be:

1. Heats patches that are disposable

2. Heating belts made for specific parts of the body

3. Moist heating pads

4. Simple hot water in a tub

5. Paraffin wax and Mineral oil

6. Hot oil massages

7. Warms showers or baths

8. Warmed towels or clothes used as a hot compress

Cold treatment therapy: Cold uses the very opposite principle of heat therapy to provide pain relief to arthritis patients. Cold has the properties of being able to constrict blood vessels and slow the flow of blood, thus resulting in numbing the area and reducing pain. Cold treatment is also very effective in reducing swelling as it can fight inflammation very effectively. It is mostly useful in cases of acute and chronic pain and is a very good pain reliever. Some of the options available for cold treatments would be:

1. Cold compress by using ice in a waterproof bag with a towel covering it to protect the skin.

2. Buying a medically manufactured ice pack or bag

3. Buying ice gel packs from the medical store which can be frozen and then used

4. Making ice packs at home by mixing water with rubbing alcohol and then freezing it

5. Taking ice bath by pouring ice into the bath tub.
