Atelvia Medication Information
Postmenopausal women who have osteoporosis may benefit from AtelviaTM (risedronate delayed-release). This medicine is different from other bisphosphonates because you do not need to avoid food and drink after taking it. In fact, this once-weekly product is designed to be taken with breakfast.
Prior to taking Atelvia, inform your healthcare provider if you have any other medical conditions, such as esophageal strictures or kidney disease, or if you are unable to remain upright for at least 30 minutes. In such cases, this medication may not be right for you.
