What is CinnoPar used for?

CinnoPar is used in both men and postmenopausal women with osteoporosis who are at high risk for having fractures.

CinnoPar can be used by people who have had a fracture related to osteoporosis, or who have several risk factors for fracture, or who cannot use other osteoporosis treatments.

CinnoPar is used in both men and women with osteoporosis due to use of glucocorticoid medicines, such as prednisone, for several months, who are at high risk for having broken bones (fractures). These include men and women with either a history of broken bones, who have several risk factors for fracture, or who can not use other osteoporosis treatments.

It is not known if CinnoPar is safe and effective in children. CinnoPar should not be used in children and young adults whose bones are still growing.
