AbstractPharmacological management of osteoporosis includes use of calcium with vitamin D, bisphosphonates, strontium ranelate and hormonal therapies. This article discusses these treatment options and the role pharmacists have in supporting patients with or at risk of developing the disease. It also looks at national guidelines for treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. Current technology appraisals from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence look specifically at primary and secondary prevention for postmenopausal women only. The National Osteoporosis Guideline Group guideline for postmenopausal women and men aged over 50 years provides recommendations for the management of those at high risk of fracture by using a probability assessment tool.
