ACTONEL (RISEDRONATE)

 

Actonel Description

Actonel or the generic risedronate belong to a class of medicines known as bisphosphonates that are prescribed to treat conditions such as osteoporosis and Paget’s disease that affect the formation, density, and strength of bones. Bone is living tissue that is constantly being broken down and replaced. Osteoporosis occurs when the creation of new bone doesn't keep up with the removal of old bone. New bone is laid down by cells called osteoblasts while old bone is removed by cells called osteoclasts. Bisphosphonates, such as Actonel strengthen bone by inhibiting bone removal (resorption) by osteoclasts. Your chance of developing osteoporosis increases as you age, after menopause, or if you are taking corticosteroid medications for a long time.

 

Conditions Treated by Actonel

In addition to treatment for osteoporosis, your doctor may prescribe Actonel if you have Paget’s disease, a condition which disrupts your body’s normal bone recycling process. Bones may become misshapen and fragile. Bone loss may also occur following menopause or as a result of prolonged use of glucocorticoid medications.

 

Before You Take Actonel

Before using Actonel you should advise your doctor of any esophagus problems, difficulty swallowing, low levels of calcium in the blood, kidney disease, intestinal disorders (such as ulcers) or if you are unable to sit upright or stand for at least 30 minutes. You will need to remain upright for 30 minutes after taking Actonel or risedronate generic. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Warnings for Actonel

Calcium or iron supplements, vitamins with minerals, certain dairy products, calcium-enriched juice, and antacids containing calcium/magnesium/aluminum, may interfere with absorption of Actonel. Certain medications such as quinapril, sucralfate and bismuth subsalicylate may also interfere with absorption of Actonel and should not be taken for at least thirty minutes after taking Actonel or generic risedronate.
