Alendronic sodium is a prescription medication used to treat and prevent osteoporosis, a condition in which the bones become weak and brittle. It belongs to a class of drugs called bisphosphonates.

Alendronic sodium works by slowing down the breakdown of bone tissue, which helps to increase bone density and reduce the risk of fractures. It is typically taken orally, usually once a week or once a month, as directed by a healthcare provider. It is important to take the medication exactly as prescribed and not to exceed the recommended dosage or duration of use.

Common side effects of alendronic sodium include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. It may also increase the risk of serious side effects, such as esophageal ulcers or fractures of the thigh bone, so it is important to let your healthcare provider know about any history of these conditions or any other medical conditions you have.

Alendronic sodium should not be used in patients with certain medical conditions, such as severe kidney disease, or in combination with other medications that affect the bones or the digestive system. It may also interact with other medications, so it is important to let your healthcare provider know about any other medications you are taking, including over-the-counter and herbal supplements.
