Forteo Injections for Osteoporosis

Forteo™ (teriparatide) is a prescription osteoporosis medication. It is a manufactured version of parathyroid hormone, which works to help regulate calcium and phosphate in the body. It is specifically approved for use in people who are at a high risk for fractures (broken bones). In addition, it is designed for use in men and postmenopausal women only. Unlike most other osteoporosis drugs, Forteo cannot be taken orally; instead, it is given as a daily injection.
