Actonel / Ribone (risedronate) is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Risedronate belongs to a group of drugs known as bisphosphonates. Risedronate slows down bone loss. Osteoporosis is a chronic condition that develops as bone slowly becomes more porous due to the rate of resorption (bone cell destruction) running faster than new bone formation.  This increases the risk of fractures. Actonel can also be used to treat Pagets Disease.

Dosage

The dosage is determined by a doctor. The usual dose is one tablet each month. The tablet must be taken first thing in the morning with a full glass of water, at least 30 minutes before eating. It should be taken when sitting up or standing.

Read the manufacturer’s Patient leaflet that comes with the medication.

The most common side effects of risedronate are:

  • headache
  • joint pain
  • nausea. , diarrhea or abdominal pain
  • rash
  • high blood pressure.

 

Rarely, patients may experience jaw problems (osteonecrosis of the jaw) associated with delayed healing and infection after tooth extraction.

Not all side effects are listed here. If these or other unlisted symptoms persist or worsen, consult with a healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Actonel / Ribone is indicated for the treatment and prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis and Paget’s disease (a disease that weakens the bones).

Osteoporosis causes bones to become thinner and break more easily. The main causes of osteoarthritis are aging, menopause, long-term treatment with corticosteroids, or a diet that is deficient in minerals such as calcium and potassium. There is also a genetic component.

Osteoporosis does not always have outward signs until there is a sudden bone fracture. The only definitive diagnosis can come from a bone density test. Some possible visible signs are a stooped posture, pain when swiveling the lower back at the hips, and loss of height due to spinal compression.

  • What are the red flags for osteoporosis?
    Osteoporosis is often called a silent disease, since there may be no indications until a sudden fracture. Some early warning signs of osteoporosis include a stooped posture, difficulty in bending, sudden back pain, or loss of height which comes from spinal compression. A bone density test is the only way to properly diagnose osteoporosis.
  • What is the number one drug for osteoporosis?
    Drugs in the bisphosphonat group are usually the first choice for treating osteoporosis in menopausal women. The ones most frequently prescribed are Actonel (risedronate), which can be taken just once each month, or alendronate, which is a weekly dose.
  • Can risedronate reverse osteoporosis?
    It was established in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial lasting 3 years that risedronate can prevent bone loss in postmenopausal women with normal bone density. It also showed that it lowered the risk of further breaks in patients with a history of vertebral fractures.
  • Is Pagets disease serious?
    The enlarged or misshapen bones caused by Paget's Disease can lead to stress in the joints where these bones connect into the skeleton. It can lead to osteoarthritis in those joints. Paget's Disease most frequently affects the pelvis, spine, legs, skull, and shoulders.
