Fosamax® is a prescription drug used to treat osteoporosis and Paget's disease. The drug works by binding to certain cells in bones and slowing down the rate at which they break down. It can also be used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women with risk factors for the disease. In studies, women taking Fosamax showed increased bone mineral density, while those not taking it actually experienced bone loss.
