Miacalcin is a type of hormone used in the treatment of osteoporosis for women who are at least 5 years past menopause and cannot or do not want to take estrogen products. This type of medication works by increasing the patients bone density to prevent their bones from breaking down.
Miacalcin is sprayed into the patients nose, usually once a day. The patient should alternate nostrils everyday. In order to maximize the effectiveness of this medication, never take more or less than what has been prescribed by your doctor.
Some of the common side effects users may experience when taking Miacalcin include nosebleeds, runny nose, sinus pain, joint pain, back pain and upset stomach. If you begin experiencing more severe side effects such as hives, swollen tongue or difficulty breathing, contact a medical professional for assistance.
Occasionally, Miacalcin will be prescribed to treat other conditions, as suggested by your doctor.
