Fosamax (alendronate) to be promoted to PREVENT osteoporosis

    The FDA will soon allow Fosamax (alendronate) to be promoted to PREVENT osteoporosis. It was originally approved for treatment.

    Fosamax slows bone loss and increases bone density. It reduces hip fractures by 50% in women who already have osteoporosis.

    Now it'll also be used for women who are at risk because of early menopause...thin build...Caucasian or Asian history...or a low bone density.
