Alendronate belongs to a family of medications known as bisphosphonates. It is used to treat and prevent Osteoporosis for postmenopausal women. It is also used to treat osteoporosis for men.

Alendronate may also be used to treat and prevent steroid-induced osteoporosis for men and women (osteoporosis caused by taking corticosteroids such as Prednisone for long periods of time). It may also be used to treat Paget's disease of the bone for both men and women.

Alendronate increases the thickness of bone (bone mineral density) by slowing down the cells that usually break down bone (osteoclasts). This allows the cells that build bone (osteoblasts) to work more efficiently. By making bones stronger, alendronate can help to reduce the incidence of osteoporosis-related fractures.

Phl Alendronate may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Phl Alendronate may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
