Fosamax Information

Buy Fosamax from our online pharmacy. Fosamax, or Alendronate as it is otherwise known, is an Osteoporosis medication that is widely used for the treatment of bone diseases such as Osteoporosis and Paget’s disease.

Medicine Intake Guidelines

Our online pharmacies state that Fosamax is a possible throat and mouth irritant. Fosamax should be taken with precaution as it might cause mouth irritation when chewed or broken down. It is advised to take Fosamax with a full glass of water (about 6-8 ounces) and to avoid chewing or breaking down the tablet as it might irritate your throat and mouth; in short, swallow the tablet whole.

Fosamax is usually prescribed for a once weekly intake. On advice from our online pharmacy, it is best to take it on the same day each week. It is also best to take this Osteoporosis medication in the morning before eating or drinking anything. The full action of Fosamax could only be felt when it is not taken along with other foods and beverages as they may greatly decrease the action of Fosamax in your body. The appropriate time would be 30 minutes before your morning meal.

Fosamax comes in a tablet form so you have to swallow them whole; after swallowing the tablet with a full glass of water, avoid lying down. Remain properly and fully upright either standing or sitting down for at least 30 minutes. Do not take Fosamax when you are about to go to bed but rather take it when you about to get up for the day, as you should not lie down after taking Fosamax.

Fosamax Missed Dose

It is fine to miss a dose when taking Fosamax, as there are no effects on your medication and treatment when a single dose has been missed. When missing a dosage of Fosamax, just take a tablet the morning after you remember to and continue with your normal schedule of Fosamax intake after that. Remember not to take double doses when you have missed a dose of this Osteoporosis medication as it is strictly not advised. Just take one tablet and return to your normal once weekly intake.
