Our expert says:
The only way to monitor efficacy of therapy is to have a bone density done. The new take on bisphosphonates (alendronate etc) is to take them for no longer than 5-6 years and to either have a 'drug free" holiday for a year or two and evaluate bone density again, or if there was a decline in bone density to try another drug.
