What is Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) used for?

Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) is an oral medication prescribed to treat or prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It operates by slowing the loss of bone matter and increasing bone mass to prevent fractures, bone pain, or similar injuries caused by this condition. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.

How should I use Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium)?

One tablet of Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) is normally administered once daily in the morning prior to eating breakfast or taking other medications. The best dosage for you will be determined by your doctor based on your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed whole and unaltered along with a large glass of water. Never split or crush the tablets before use to avoid destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Ask your doctor any questions you have regarding the medicine to ensure the correct administration.

  • Eye pain

Strictly use Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) as prescribed and follow all instructions provided by your doctor. Safe, suitable, and optimum dosage can vary and is dependent on the patient`s health and medical history, as well as the condition you are treating.

Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) may not be safe or suitable for all patients.
