Fosamax is used to treat or prevent osteoporosis in both men and women, either after the menopause or from steroid use. Men who have osteoporosis buy Fosamax to treat their symptoms. Fosamax is also used to treat both men and women suffering from Paget’s disease of the bone.
Fosamax is part of a group of drugs known as bisphosphonates. It works by altering the cycle of bone breakdown and formation in the body. The drug also increases bone mass, whilst slowing down bone loss, possibly helping to prevent fracturing of the bones.
