Abstract

The results of this large survey of Italian osteoporotic women indicates that the most important determinant of both persistence and compliance to treatment is the type of drug prescribed with a definite advantage of ALN-OW. Treatment compliance is particularly poor for CaVitD and this emphasizes the need for new ways to supplement at least vitamin D. The main reasons for discontinuation are side effects and lack of motivation while the best treatment adherence was observed in patients with severe and well documented osteoporosis.
