AAFP Endorses ACP Guideline on Treating Osteoporosis

Factors that may contribute to poor adherence to these drugs include side effects, the inconvenience of taking them, an absence of symptoms of the underlying disease, comorbid conditions, age and socioeconomic status.

Next, the ACP recommended that physicians treat osteoporotic women using pharmacologic therapy for five years. Continuing treatment after the initial five years may be beneficial for some patients and may be appropriate after reassessing the risks and benefits of continued therapy. This was graded as a weak recommendation with low-quality evidence.

"Although the direct evidence is insufficient to determine the appropriate duration of pharmacologic therapy, most studies that evaluated the benefit of treatment continued therapy for up to five years," the guideline said.

The ACP also recommended that physicians offer pharmacologic treatment with bisphosphonates to reduce the risk for vertebral fracture in men who have clinically recognized osteoporosis -- this also was a weak recommendation based on low-quality evidence.
