: In osteoporosis, poor adherence to bisphosphonate (BP) therapy is common, and is associated with poor outcomes and increased treatment costs (Siris 2006; Recker 2005). Although compliance is improved with monthly vs weekly dosing (Reginster 2008), no evidence suggests cycling through BP agents offers therapeutic benefit, assessed by bone mineral density (BMD). In two randomized, open-label studies in postmenopausal women aged ≥55 years previously treated with, but subo...
