Proven Clinical Experience
Teriparatide Injection significantly reduced the risk of osteoporotic fractures, while increasing bone mineral density (BMD), in postmenopausal women at high risk for fracture, as compared to placebo.1§
- 65% Relative risk reduction in new vertebral fractures (5.0% vs. 14.3%, P<0.001)1
- 53% Relative risk reduction in new nonvertebral fractures (2.6% vs. 5.5%, P<0.05)1
- Significantly increased BMD at the lumbar spine, femoral neck, total hip, and total body (P<0.05)1
§ Study Design: A multicenter, prospective, double-blind study in 1,637 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, of whom 90% had a spine fracture. Patients received once-daily 20-mcg dose of Teriparatide Injection (n=541) or placebo (n=544). Patients were treated for median time of 19 months, and maximum of 24 months. All women took calcium and vitamin D daily.

Indications & Important Safety Information
Teriparatide Injection is a prescription medicine used in both men and postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who are at high risk for having bone fractures—defined as those who have had a fracture related to osteoporosis, who are at high risk for fracture, or who cannot use other osteoporosis treatments. It is also used for treating osteoporosis associated with glucocorticoid medicines, such as prednisone, in patients who are at high risk for fracture.
Important Safety Information
Do not use Teriparatide Injection if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. Serious allergic reactions may occur.
Before taking Teriparatide Injection, inform your healthcare provider if you have a bone disease other than osteoporosis, have cancer in your bones, have trouble injecting yourself, are a child or young adult whose bones are still growing, have or have had kidney stones, have had radiation therapy, have been diagnosed with too much calcium in your blood, are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed, or have any other medical conditions. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, especially medicines that contain digoxin.
Teriparatide can cause serious side effects, including a decrease in blood pressure upon changing positions. Dizziness, accelerated heartbeat, or a feeling of faintness may occur, usually within four hours of taking Teriparatide Injection, and typically subside within a few hours. You should not use Teriparatide Injection for more than two years during your lifetime.
Other side effects include nausea, vomiting, constipation, low energy, joint aches, pain, leg cramps, or muscle weakness, which may be signs of too much calcium in your blood.
