Description

Actonel (Risedronate) is a bisphosphonate medicine that alters bone formation and breakdown in the body. This can slow bone loss and may help prevent bone fractures.

Actonel is used to treat or prevent osteoporosis caused by menopause, steroid use, or gonadal failure.

Actonel is also used to increase bone mass in men who have osteoporosis.

 

Your dosing schedule will depend on why you are taking Actonel and in what tablet strength. If you change strengths, you may also need to change your schedule.

Do not crush, chew, or suck on a tablet. Swallow the tablet whole.

Use only plain water when taking a Actonel tablet. Do not use coffee, tea, soda, juice, or mineral water.
