What Is Actonel Used For?


The medication Actonel is prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It belongs to a class of drugs known as bisphosphonates and helps to slow down bone loss. Actonel also helps to increase bone density. During osteoporosis, the body removes more bone than it replaces. This makes the bones weaker and increases their risk of fracture and break. Actonel corrects this imbalance by decreasing the increased rate of bone removal. Actonel also helps to reduce the risk of spine and non-spine fractures. Actonel does not relieve pain caused due to osteoporosis. Your doctor may prescribe another medicine specifically for pain relief. Since it is unknown how long Actonel should be continued for treating and preventing osteoporosis, you should regularly discuss with your doctor the need to stay on this medication.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of Actonel?


Actonel may cause problems in esophagus, stomach, and intestines, including ulcers, trouble or pain while swallowing, heartburn, chest pain, black or bloody stools. If these problems occur to you, tell your doctor right away. The most common side effects of Actonel include abdominal pain, heartburn, nausea, Paget’s Disease, headache, pain in bones, joints or muscles, short-lasting, and mild flu.

These are not all the possible side effects of Actonel. In case of any unexpected effect, contact your healthcare professional right away.
