Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy: Mean change in lumbar spine and hip bone mineral density (BMD) from baseline [ Time Frame: from baseline to Month 12 and 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compliance: percentage of patients that have received all planned study medication [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation of patient's profile parameters (age, year since menopause, fracture history, BMD at baseline) with compliance [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
