Abstract

This 5-year observational study provides evidence that tibolone is effective in increasing BMD in postmenopausal women with osteopenia and osteoporosis during the first 2 years of treatment, but because BMD starts to decline in the third year, it is vital that postmenopausal women start treatment with tibolone as early as possible, so that bone mineral density levels are kept high as long as possible.
