Product Description

General information
Fosamax belongs to a class of drugs called bisphosphonates. It is used to prevent and treat certain types of bone loss (osteoporosis) in adults. Osteoporosis causes bones to become thinner and break more easily. This medication works by slowing bone loss. This effect helps maintain strong bones and reduce the risk of broken bones (fractures). It is also used to treat Paget's disease in men and women.
Directions
Take Fosamax exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended dose for treating osteoporosis in men and postmenopausal women is either 70 mg once weekly or 10 mg once daily. The recommended dose for preventing osteoporosis in postmenopausal women is either 35 mg once weekly or 5 mg once daily. The recommended dose when treating osteoporosis that is due to steroid use in men and women is 5 mg once daily. The dose for treating osteoporosis that is caused by steroid use in postmenopausal women who are not taking estrogen hormone replacement therapy is higher - 10 mg once daily. A higher dose of Fosamax is required when treating Paget's disease - 40 mg once daily for six months. Take this medication by mouth with a full glass of water. It works only if taken on an empty stomach. Wait at least 30 minutes (preferably 1 to 2 hours) after taking the medication before you eat or drink anything.
