2. Residronate should be taken at least 30 minutes before the first food or drink of the day other than water.
3. To facilitate delivery to the stomach and thus reduce the potential for esophageal irritation patients should take resifronate while in an upright position (sitting or standing) with a full glass of plain water

5. Patients should not chew or suck the tablet because of a potential for orophageal irritation

11. Physician should instruct the patients to read Patient information before starting therapy, and read it each time the prescription is renewed
t has an affinity for hydroxyapitite crystals in bone and acts as an antiresorptive agent. At the cellular level resifronate inhibits osateoclasts. The osteoclasts adhere to the bone surface but show evidence of reduced active resorption
Absorption after an oral dose is realtively rapid and occurs through out the upper gastrointerstinal tract. The fraction of the dose absorbed is independent of dose over the range. Dosing 1 hour prior to breakfast reduces the extent of absorption by 30% compared to dosing in the fasting state. Human plasm binding of drug is about 24%. approximately half of the absorbed dose is excreted in urine within 24 hrs.and 85% of an intrevenous dose is receoverdc in the urine over 28 days. Unabsorbed drug is eliminated in the feces.
Interaction with Food:
Dosing 1 hour prior to breakfast reduces the extent of absorption by 30% compared to dosing in the fasting state.
Drug/Lab Interactions- Bisphonates are known to interfere with the use of bone-imaging agents.
Pregnancy and lactation:
Pregnancy- No adequate and well controlled studies of residronate in pregnant women. Residronate should be used in pregnancy only if the potential benefit outweighs the risk to the mother and the fetus.
Nursing women Because many drugs are excreted in human milk and because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from bisphosphonates a decison should be taken whether to discontue nursing or discontinue the drug depending on the importance of drug to the mother.
Pediatric use- Safety and effectivenes in pediatric patients have not been studied.
Geraitric patients- No overall differances in efficay or safety between patients of younger age and older individuals, but greater sensitivity in some older patients cannot be ruled out.
Use in Men- Safety and effectiveness have been demonstrated in clinical studies in men receiving ACTONEL both for Pagets disease and for treatment and prevention of glucocortoid -induced osteoporosis. However the safety and effectiveness in men for osteoporosis due to other causes have not been established,.
