What else should I know about denosumab?
Calcium and vitamin D
It's important to get enough calcium and vitamin D. You may be prescribed a daily supplement of calcium and/or vitamin D if your doctor thinks you may have a deficiency.
Other medicines and vaccinations
It's usually fine to take other medicines alongside denosumab, but check with your doctor or pharmacist before starting any new medications.
There's no reason why you shouldn't have vaccinations while you're on denosumab.
Alcohol is unlikely to interact with denosumab. However, heavy drinking is a risk factor for osteoporosis and for having falls so it's recommended that you drink alcohol only in moderation.
Fertility, pregnancy and breastfeeding
Denosumab isn't normally recommended for women of child-bearing age. It's recommended that it should not be used by women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding.
