Actonel is also called risedronate. It is in a group of medicines called bisphosphonate medicines. Its work is to change bone formation and breakdown in our bodies. This helps to decelerate bone loss and might reduce the odds of having bone fractures. Thus, Actonel is used to treat or prevent osteoporosis.
It is given mostly to women who are going through menopause or those beyond the stage. It is also prescribed for people who are experiencing bone loss due to gonadal failure or the use of steroids. Men who are suffering from osteoporosis may also be treated with Actonel.
Besides osteoporosis, the medicine can be used to treat Paget’s disease of the bone in both sexes.
How to Use
Actonel is in the form of tablets with different strengths and dosing periods. Thus, if your doctor changes your dosage strength they may as well alter your dosing schedule. The important thing is to follow their instructions to the letter.
Take your tablet in the morning with six to eight ounces of water and in an empty stomach. Don’t eat or take a different medication prior taking your Actonel. It must be taken whole and with just pure water. Wait at least half of an hour prior to lying down, eating your breakfast, or taking a different medicine.
Actonel is likely to cause these side effects:
- Joint pain
