EVENITY® is the first and only osteoporosis treatment that
WORKS IN TWO WAYS
Only EVENITY® works two ways: it works with your body's natural ability to build new bone and, to a lesser extent, slow down bone loss.
Commonly prescribed osteoporosis treatments work in one of two ways:
antiresorptives slow down bone loss, while anabolics help to stimulate bone formation.
Ask your doctor if it’s time to start building new bone with EVENITY®.

If you’re one of the millions of women with postmenopausal osteoporosis, you probably hoped you’d never break a bone.
But you see, when left untreated, osteoporosis is a disease that gets worse over time and can make bones thin and brittle.
So, what looks strong on the outside can actually be weak on the inside.
But how does osteoporosis silently weaken your bones? Let’s take a look.
Throughout your life, your body is constantly removing old bone and replacing it with new bone. Osteoporosis brings an imbalance to this natural process, which causes bone loss and puts you at risk of fracture.
In postmenopausal osteoporosis, you now have more bone-removing activity than bone-building activity.
Why is this important? Because this imbalance is what makes bones more likely to fracture—even if you’re simply bending or twisting.
And that’s not all. Once you’ve broken a bone, you’re 5 times more likely to break another bone within 1 year. And who knows, next time it could be even worse.
You could break a bone in your back, hip, or leg. Ask yourself: isn’t one fracture enough?
Now it’s time to build new bone.
It’s time for EVENITY®. EVENITY® is an anabolic treatment for women with osteoporosis after menopause at high risk for fracture. But you can call it a bone-building treatment. EVENITY® rapidly reduces spine fracture risk and builds new bone in 12 months.
To see how EVENITY® does this, let’s take a look inside an osteoporotic bone.
Here, you can see there’s more bone-removing activity than bone-building activity—which caused the bone to break.
EVENITY® works in two ways to unlock your body’s natural ability to build new bone. One, it increases the activity of bone-building cells.
And, two, to a lesser extent, it slows down bone loss by decreasing your body’s bone-removing activity.
No other bone-building treatment does that.
That’s why you should talk to your doctor about EVENITY® today.
EVENITY® may increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, or death from a heart or blood vessel problem. Tell your doctor if you’ve had a heart attack or stroke, especially in the past year. Heart attack symptoms may include chest pain or pressure; shortness of breath; light-headed or dizzy feeling. Stroke symptoms may include headache; numbness or weakness in the face, arm or legs; difficulty talking; changes in vision or loss of balance. Get medical help right away if you experience any of these symptoms.
Don’t start EVENITY® if you have low blood calcium, or are allergic to it. Serious allergic reactions like rash, hives; face, lip, mouth, tongue or throat swelling, which may cause trouble breathing or swallowing have happened. Get medical help right away if you experience any of these symptoms.
Tell your doctor about dental problems as severe jaw bone problems may happen or new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, of thigh, which are symptoms of unusual thigh bone fractures.
EVENITY® may cause serious side effects, like low blood calcium. Tell your doctor if you have symptoms like spasms, twitches, muscle cramps, numbness or tingling in your fingers, toes or around your mouth.
The most common side effects include joint pain and headaches.
EVENITY® is a prescription medicine used to treat osteoporosis in women after menopause who are at high risk for fracture or who cannot use another osteoporosis medicine or other osteoporosis medicines did not work well.
So, if you’ve broken a bone due to postmenopausal osteoporosis…
…speak to your doctor about rapidly reducing your spine fracture risk and building bone in 12 months…
Unlike some osteoporosis treatments that need to be taken daily or weekly, EVENITY® is given once a month.
Each EVENITY® dose consists of 2 shots given under your skin every month by your doctor or healthcare provider. You should take calcium and vitamin D as your doctor tells you to while you receive EVENITY®. If you miss an appointment, contact your doctor as soon as possible to reschedule.
Don’t let a break put you on the shelf
