Fosamax is the brand name of the generic drug called alendronate. Fosamax is used to treat osteoporosis, otherwise known as thinning or porous bone. By rebuilding bone, Fosamax helps to prevent developing fractures.
Doctors prescribe Fosamax for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, the treatment of osteoporosis in male patients to reduce the occurrence of fractures as well as the treatment and prevention of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis in men and women.
Normally, old bone is broken down by the osteoclasts and new bone is made by the osteoblasts. Fosamax works by stopping the osteoclasts from breaking down the bone, which helps to keep the bones strong and less likely to break.
Fosamax 70mg is taken orally ONCE PER WEEK. After getting up for the day and before eating or drinking anything else, take Fosamax with 250mL of plain water. Do not take this medication with mineral water, coffee, tea or juice. Remain upright for half an hour after taking this medication.

Osteoporosis is a medical term meaning porous or thinning bone, which increases the likelihood of broken bones particularly in the hip, spine, wrist and shoulder. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone occurs less quickly than the removal of old bone. Often known as “the silent thief”, bone loss happens without symptoms in the early stages. Later, symptoms may include back pain, loss of height, stooped posture or a bone fracture. White and Asian women, especially older women who are past menopause, are most at risk for developing osteoporosis. Bone loss affects both men and women. At least one in three women and one in five men will suffer a broken bone from osteoporosis. Bone is living tissue that is continuously being broken down and replaced. Medications such as bisphosphonates, healthy diet and weight-bearing exercise can help prevent bone loss or strengthen already weak bones.
