Evenity Will Be a New Injectable for Postmenopausal Osteoporosis
You'll hear about Evenity (ee-VEN-ih-tee, romosozumab), a new injectable med for postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.
Evenity increases bone growth AND decreases bone breakdown. Other osteoporosis meds (alendronate, Forteo, etc) only do one or the other.
Expect Evenity to be saved for high-risk women...such as those with a prior fracture on a bisphosphonate (alendronate, etc) or with multiple back fractures.
