Miacalcin Injection -- Osteoporosis

Postmenopausal women with osteoporosis may be given Miacalcin® injection (calcitonin salmon injection). However, this drug is only prescribed when a woman is at least five years past menopause and is unable to tolerate estrogen therapy or should not take estrogen for medical reasons. It works by slowing down the rate at which bone breaks down.
