How do the medications for osteoporosis work?

Osteoporosis medications are classified into two main categories—antiresorptive agents and anabolic agents. Antiresorptive medications include the bisphosphonates, denosumab, estrogens, raloxifene, and calcitonin; these agents work by inhibiting osteoclastic bone resorption. Teriparatide and abaloparatide are the currently available anabolic agents; they work by stimulating osteoblastic bone formation.
