It is being compared to the prescription drug Famotidine, in that they have similar uses. At this time, I haven't been able to locate much more information on this drug, other than what you see above. If anyone else has additional details to add then that would be great!2 REPLIES Updated
What's the best way to administer Ostospray to ensure maximum absorption? ## Otospray contains the active ingredient Calcitonin and is most commonly used to help protect against bone mineral loss. As to how much is absorbed into the body, I haven't found any information on that. However, with most medications, it is only a small fraction of what is actually in any given dosage. Does anyone else have any information to add?1 REPLY Updated
