Tiludronate for Paget's Disease

Tiludronate disodium (Skelid®) is a bisphosphonate medication approved to treat Paget's disease of bone. It works by slowing the breakdown of bone, which can help the body build bone normally. This prescription drug is approved for use in both men and women; however, since it has not been adequately studied in children, it is currently only licensed for use in adults.
 
Not all people with Paget's need to be treated with a bisphosphonate. This medication is meant for use in people who have:
 
  • Very high alkaline phosphate levels (a measure of the disease's severity)
  • Paget's symptoms
  • A risk for future complications of Paget's disease.
