What is Actonel?

Actonel and the generic alternative risedronate are medications used to treat and prevent osteoporosis caused by menopause, steroid use or gonadal failure and to treat Paget’s disease. Actonel alters bone formation and breakdown within the body helping to slow bone loss and prevent bone fractures.

  • Take Actonel orally after getting up in a morning before taking any food, drink or other medication. Do not take this medication at bedtime or while you are still in bed. li>
  • Swallow Actonel whole with a full glass of water. Do not chew or suck on this tablet.
  • Once you have taken Actonel, you should stay upright for at least thirty minutes. This can involve sitting, standing or walking. Do not eat, drink anything other than water or take any medications for 30 minutes after taking risedronate to avoid interfering with the absorption of this medication.
