Fosamax prescription FAQs

  • How Does Fosamax Work?

    Fosamax belongs to a class of drugs called bisphosphonates, which slows the rate of bone loss and helps prevent broken bones that result from bone loss.

  • What Is The Recommended Fosamax Dosage and Treatment?

    It's critically important to follow your doctor's directions EXACTLY when they prescribe you Fosamax. Failing to do so can cause serious side effects or even a potentially dangerous overdose.

    Generally, Fosamax is prescribed as either 10 mg per day OR 70 mg once a week. Make sure you know whether you are supposed to take the medication every day or only once a week so that you get the proper dosage.

    Fosamax must be taken first thing when you get up in the morning with a full glass of still water. You must avoid drinking any other liquids, eating any foods, or taking any other medications for at least 30 minutes after taking Fosamax, and it's better to wait at least an hour or two to give your body plenty of time to absorb the Fosamax.

    To reduce the risk of damage to your esophagus, you must remain sitting or standing for 30 minutes after taking the medication. You must not lie down again during this time.
