Fosamax (alendronate) is in the group of medicines called bisphosphonates (bis FOS fo nayts). It alters the cycle of bone formation and breakdown in the body. Fosamax slows bone loss while increasing bone mass, which may prevent bone fractures. Fosamax is used in men and women to treat or prevent osteoporosis that is caused by menopause or by taking steroids. Fosamax is also used to increase bone mass in men who have osteoporosis, and to treat Paget`s disease of bone in men and women.

Do not take a Fosamax tablet if you cannot sit upright or stand for at least 30 minutes. Fosamax can cause serious problems in the stomach or esophagus (the tube that connects your mouth and stomach). You will need to stay upright for at least 30 minutes after taking Fosamax.
Take the Fosamax tablet first thing in the morning, at least 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything or take any other medicine.
Take each dose with a full glass (6 to 8 ounces) of water. Use only plain water (not mineral water, coffee, tea, or juice) when taking a Fosamax tablet.
For at least the first 30 minutes after taking a Fosamax tablet, do not lie down or recline; do not eat or drink anything other than plain water; and do not take any other medicines including vitamins, calcium, or antacids.
Some people using medicines similar to Fosamax have developed bone loss in the jaw, also called osteonecrosis of the jaw. Symptoms may include jaw pain, swelling, numbness, loose teeth, gum infection, or slow healing after injury or surgery involving the gums. You may be more likely to develop osteonecrosis of the jaw if you have cancer or have been treated with chemotherapy, radiation, or steroids. Other conditions associated with osteonecrosis of the jaw include blood clotting disorders, anemia (low red blood cells), and a pre-existing dental problem.
If you need to have any dental work (especially surgery), tell the dentist ahead of time that you are using Fosamax. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.
Fosamax is only part of a complete program of treatment that may also include diet changes, exercise, and taking calcium and vitamin supplements. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely.

I wanted to get started with placing an order with them but did not know how to go about it. So I called on the Toll-Free Number and the representative guided me through. He not only set up an account for me but also placed my order.
I was devastated when I found out my insurance was not going to cover my medications. My doctor recommended this website, their pricing is unbeatable and they offer free shipping as well. They would now be my "go-to" pharmacy for all my medications.
I was skeptical at first, placing an order with them. But since I was recommended by a friend I decided to take a risk with a small order. I am so glad I did that, now it's been more than 4 years that I have been getting my medications from them ...
I cannot recommend them enough, communication was prompt and the product exceeded expectations. Already spread the word to mates. Great work, Team.
Authentic product and fast shipping. My package came all the way to Alaska in just 10 days. I am very impressed with their services.
A very reliable company, would continue doing business with them. I am kept updated throughout the process of my order. Arrived in great condition, I will be using them in the future as well.
