Fosamax without a prescription

Fosamax is prescribed both to prevent bone loss in people who are at risk of developing osteoporosis, and to prevent fractures in people who already have osteoporosis. Fosamax works by binding very tightly to the bone and preventing the calcium being removed by the osteoclasts. This stops the osteoclasts from breaking down the bone, which helps to keep the bones strong and less likely to break.
Fosamax is prescribed for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, the brittle bone disease, in postmenopausal women. It is prescribed to increase bone mass in men with osteoporosis, and is prescribed for both men and women who have developed a form of osteoporosis sometimes caused by steroid medications such as prednisone. Fosamax can be prescribed to relieve Paget's disease of bone, a painful condition that weakens and deforms the bones.
Fosamax tablets contain the active ingredient alendronic acid, which is a type of drug called a bisphosphonate. Alendronic acid tablets are available without a brand name, ie as the generic drug. Bisphosphonates are drugs that prevent the breakdown of bone.
As Fosamax slows bone turnover and so prevents calcium being rebsorbed from the bones into the blood, it can cause the amount of calcium in your blood to fall too low. If your dietary intake of calcium and vitamin D is low, your doctor may ask you to take supplements to prevent this.
Bone is not a static structure. It is continually shaped, reformed and rebuilt by cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts. These cells continously deposit and remove calcium and phophorous, stored in a protein network that makes up the structure of the bone. Old bone is broken down by the osteoclasts and new bone is formed by the osteoblasts.
In women at the menopause, blood levels of the female hormone oestrogen start to decrease. This results in an increase in bone breakdown by the osteoclasts, which can lead to a loss of bone density. Bone loss is particularly rapid for the first ten years after the menopause and it may lead to the development of osteoporosis - a condition in which the bones become weak and brittle and break more easily.
Osteoporosis can occur in men and as a result of long-term treatment with corticosteroid drugs such as prednisolone. Other risk factors include smoking, a family history of osteoporosis, early menopause and thin body build.

Fosamax is prescribed for the treatment of:
- Prevention and treatment of osteoporosis caused by long-term treatment with corticosteroids such as prednisolone;
- Prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in women who have passed the menopause;
- Treatment of osteoporosis in men;
