To the Editor We have read with great interest the article by Munson and colleagues1 in a recent issue of JAMA Internal Medicine exploring the use of prescription drugs associated with fracture risk in patients with fragility fractures. At the time of fracture, about three-quarters of patients were receiving at least 1 drug associated with increased fracture risk. The prescription pattern did not substantially change following the fracture event.
