About Binosto

What is Binosto?

Binosto is the drug alendronate, a bisphosphonate calcium regulator prescribed to treat osteoporosis in post-menopausal women; it may also be prescribed to treat osteoporosis in men, in both men and women taking corticosteroids, and for those with Paget’s disease. It works by increasing bone density and preventing bone loss.

How do I take Binosto?

Binosto is administered as effervescent tablets that are dissolved in water then drunk. The standard dosing pattern is once a week, in the morning, at least 30 minutes prior to the first food, beverage, or medication of the day. Follow the dosing instructions that accompany this medication exactly. After taking Binosto, do not lie down, eat, or drink anything except water, or and avoid taking any other medications, vitamins, or supplements for at least 30 minutes. Your doctor may recommend a diet rich in calcium and Vitamin D.

What if I forget to take a dose of Binosto?

If you miss your scheduled weekly dose of Binosto, take it at the same time the next morning, then resume the regular once-a-week schedule. Do not increase the amount taken or change the dosing pattern.

What happens if I overdose on Binosto?

If an overdose of Binosto is suspected, contact the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222. If the individual has stopped breathing or lost consciousness, contact Emergency Services at 911.
