Drugs for Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

JAMA. 2019;321(22):2233-2234. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.6077

In this week’s JAMA, an article entitled “Hip Fractures in Older Adults in 2019” by Berry and colleagues summarizes the various interventions that can help prevent these devastating injuries. One component of those interventions is drug treatment for osteoporosis. The December 18, 2017, issue of The Medical Letter has an article entitled “Drugs for Postmenopausal Osteoporosis” that reviews these drugs. The Table on these pages comparing the various drug therapies available for treating postmenopausal osteoporosis was part of that article, but has been updated.
