Patients suffering from a bone disorder known as Paget’s disease are often advised to buy Skelid as this drug regulates bone metabolism, reduces bone turnover, and helps prevent deformation of new bones or the breakdown of old bones.

Skelid is supplied as 240mg oral tablets and contains the following inactive ingredients: sodium lauryl sulphate, crospovidone, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, and lactose monohydrate and magnesium stearate.

The generic name for Skelid is Tiludronate disodium.
