Drug information for alendronate (alendronic acid)

Medication Information: Osteoporosis is a disease that predisposes your bones to fragility. Over a lifetime, old bone tissue is constantly destroyed and replaced with new bone. After the age of 30-35, our bones lose their density because old bones die faster than they can be replaced by new ones. Women are at greater risk for osteoporosis because their old bones are destroyed more quickly after menopause. Alendronite belongs to a group of drugs called bisphosphonates.These drugs slow down the loss of old bone and at the same time, your body continues to build new bone and bone density increases. Alendronic acid reduces the risk of bone fractures. Your doctor may prescribe one tablet of alendronate (10 mg) daily or may prescribe the drug weekly (70 mg per week).

The drug is called Fosavance, a combination pill of alendronate and a vitamin called colecalciferol (the same vitamin D3). Vitamin colecalciferol helps your bones absorb calcium. The body naturally makes this vitamin when exposed to sunlight, and it also gets to the body by eating foods such as fish oil. However, in older people, the absorption of this vitamin may be reduced. This brand of medicine (Fosavance) is very suitable for people because it is a supplement of alendronate and vitamin colecalciferol or D3.
