There is no data regarding the efficacy of stopping and restarting FORTEO (teriparatide) therapy.
What Should I Do If My Teriparatide Therapy is Interrupted?
If you need to stop teriparatide for a period of time because you do not have access to sufficient refrigeration due to the weather conditions, you may restart it once you are able to store device properly.
Teriparatide was studied in once-a-day administration without interruption, therefore, no data are available on interruption of therapy. It is not known what effect stopping and starting teriparatide may have on the efficacy of the medication
Therefore, no data are available on interruption of therapy. Make sure that you follow-up with your physician and let him or her know that you had to stop teriparatide for a period of time.
