Generic Fosamax Information

  • Active Compound
  • Dosage
  • Precautions
  • Common Side Effects
  • Severe Side Effects
  • Additional Info

Alendronate present in Generic Fosamax demonstrates favored localization to sites of bone resorption, precisely under osteoclasts. The osteoclasts stick normally to the bone surface but are deprived of the tangled border suggestive of active resorption. Alendronate does not hinder osteoclast recruitment or attachment, but inhibits osteoclast activity. Though merged in bone matrix, alendronate is not pharmacologically active and hence must be continuously taken to suppress osteoclasts on newly formed resorption surfaces. Alendronate treatment decreases bone turnover (i.e., the number of sites at which bone is remodeled). Hence, bone formation outdoes bone resorption at these remodeling sites, leading to advanced gain in bone mass.

Generic Fosamax is taken as

  • 10 mg OD or 70 mg (tablet or oral solution) once in a week in case of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and in men
  • 5 mg OD or 35 mg once weekly for preventing osteoporosis in postmenopausal women

  • 40 mg OD for six months in case of Paget's disease of the bone

Swallow tablets with 6-8 ounces plain water at least 30 minutes prior to first food, drink, or medication of the day.
