Can treatment be on-again, off-again, on-again?

I have travel days longer than 8-10 hours, so going to the trouble of keeping the forteo cold for long travel days is a challenge. I've heard that you can stop the daily injected dose for a period of time, then go back on, and at the end of the two years your results should be just as good. I'd appreciate any information on studies about this -- thanks! -Maggie

@Maggie KL,
If you read the package information on Forteo very carefully you'll learn that
it should be taken daily around the same time. So it doesn't matter if you
give yourself an injection in the morning or the evening, just make sure it is
consistently done and around the same time each day.

@CalamityJane,
I guess my question was not clearly stated. I am wondering about stopping my doses for 1-2 weeks at a time while I'm traveling. I've heard that there are studies where people have stopped for three months at a time (for financial reasons), then gone back on, and their results are just as good after two years on Forteo. That's what I meant by "on-again-off-again." Do you know of such studies, and/or can refer me to one?
