Actonel is the brand name of the medication risedronate, a biphosphonate medication that alters bone breakdown and formation in the body. It is usually prescribed to help prevent fractures and slow bone loss in some osteoporosis patients and to help increase bone mass in men with osteoporosis, and to treat Paget’s bone disease.

As with all medications, take risedronate in an exact manner that your doctor prescribes it to you. Depending on the case and strength of the medication, your doctor’s instructions can vary from one tablet daily to one tablet per month. You should stick to the schedule that your doctor gives you as close as possible. This medication should be taken with a full glass of water, and you should avoid ingesting anything but water for 30 minutes past taking it, including any other medications. You should not take risedronate with anything besides plain water. This medication is usually prescribed as part of a full regimen of exercise, diet, supplements, and various tests. These directions should be followed closely. Store the medication in the original packs away from heat and moisture at room temperature.


Before taking this medication, you should give your doctor a full list of every medication, vitamin, and supplement that you take, along with an updated medical history. Doing so will help your doctor determine if this medication is safe for you to take. After taking this medication, you may be instructed to stand, walk, or sit for the next 30 minutes. If you experience muscle spasms, abnormal or new hip pain, extreme joint, bone or muscle pain, or numbness and tingling.

If you suspect that you are experiencing an allergic reaction, you should get emergency medical help immediately. While taking this medication, it is possible to experience bone loss in the jaw in some rare cases. Symptoms of this may include loose teeth, swollen and red gums, jaw numbness and pain, or slow dental healing. Smoking while taking risedronate can increase your chance of experiencing fractures.

If you suspect that you are experiencing an overdose, you should drink a full glass of milk, stay upright, and avoid inducing vomiting. Get emergency medical help right away.

It is unknown if this medication is safe to take while pregnant or breastfeeding. Talk to your doctor before becoming pregnant or breastfeeding if you are taking this medication.

The medication to treated SIBO in the USA is absolutely over priced as it has to be used usually twice a year. True Canada Pharmacy helped me obtain 2+ treatment doses of it for far, far, far less than 1 treatment dose cost in the USA. Due to the pandemic it takes a while to get it but we are all set for the next time it recurs. Thank you so very much.

I was frustrated with the Visa payment system being inoperable, but I have to say that when they went ahead a filled the Rx and said they would process the claim when it went back up, that was exceptional service - thank you

I have used Canadian Pharmacy for at least 10-12 years. I have been very grateful to be able to get my life saving scripts at reasonable affordable prices. The follow-up of your Reps is excellent. During the COVID 19 virus outbreak scripts took much longer to receive. I think thus was partly due to the U.S.P.S. assault by DeJoy as Postmaster General. Before COVID 19 it took approx. 2-3 weeks to receive meds; during COVID 19 and the US General Election year, it took easily 2 months to receive scripts. It will be interesting to see if future orders arrive any more quickly after DeJoy is no longer Postmaster General?!

Good experience. I found another pharmacy with a lower price than yours, and you did lower the price for me. It took some time to get everything straight, so you expedited the mail and I received it on time. Thank you.
