Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 years ago):
In April of 2009 I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, particularly of my spine and hips. I was prescribed a regimen of additional calcium and vitamin D3 intake, along with weight-bearing strength training, all of which I have been doing since the beginning of May 2009.
In a subsequent meeting with my prescribing physician in the autumn of 2009, he said that some SSRI's are associated with a loss of bone density. In December 2009, I had another bone scan done, and the results were only marginally better, for the wrist and hips, and ever-so-slightly worse for my spine.
Just today I read where if one is not getting enough magnesium intake, this can allow build-up of calcium deposits in joints and tissues, as well as prevent bone from absorbing calcium.
I'm in a quandary as to whether I should discontinue my fluoxetine prescription and/or increase my magnesium intake and temporarily decrease my calcium intake, to get my bone density up more significantly.
