Osteoporosis is a systemic disease in which bone mineral density is significantly reduced, thereby increasing the fragility of bones and increasing the risk of fractures. Therefore, drugs for the treatment of osteoporosis should, first of all, solve the problem of increasing the bone mineral density, that is, to strengthen them.
In acute pain syndrome, as well as when pain occurs as a result of compression fractures, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs from the group of non-opioid analgesics can be prescribed to patients for anesthesia. However, it is not recommended to take them for a long time.
In recent years, doctors often resort to the combined medical treatment of osteoporosis, that is, the use of several drugs of different groups. For example, with osteoporosis in men, combined with hypogonadism (insufficient secretion of male sex hormones), the regimen includes testosterone preparations, fluorides and bisphosphonates.
Drugs that restore bone structure are very effective in treating osteoporosis, but at the same time, they are very expensive and quite unsafe, because they cause some serious side reactions. If you have symptoms of osteoporosis or if you have an already diagnosed diagnosis, do not start taking these medications on your own, but first, consult a doctor.
