Were you looking for information about Fosamax? Fosmax is a common misspelling of Fosamax.
Fosamax® (alendronate sodium) is a medication used to treat osteoporosis and Paget's disease. The drug is also licensed to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It comes in tablet form; however, a liquid form is also available for those who have difficulty swallowing tablets. You need to make sure that you get enough calcium and vitamin D while taking Fosamax, as the medication cannot build bone without these things. Possible side effects include joint pain, indigestion, and muscle pain.
