User Comments about Forteo
22 Mar 2013 Nothing good has happened. Lost weight that I couldn't afford to lose. Lost muscle in my arms. I wish my doctor would let me stop taking the medicine.

24 Sep 2011 gastrointestinal dysfunction; gastroparesis, gastritis, gut motility disorder that did NOT resovle upon discontinuance of treatment with forteo but progressively got worse. Doctors don't know how to treat, there does not seem to be a "cure" for the damage done to GI tract. Still no resolution nearly two years later. Not worth ruining your quality of life and suffering every day with every meal. I am searching for others affected in the same way with the use of Forteo.
