Risofos 150 mg is a prescription medicine used to prevent and treat osteoporosis. It increases bone mass in women with osteoporosis. Risofos prevents and treats osteoporosis in men and women caused by treatment with steroid medicines such as prednisone. It contains the active ingredient Risedronate, widely used to treat broken bones in people with osteoporosis.
Risedronate help strengthens and may make you less likely to have fractured bones. It is a bisphosphonate drug that helps to slow bone loss. In many people, Risedronate helps to increase bone density. In osteoporosis, the body removes more bone than it replaces with new ones. This causes bones to weaken, making them more likely to break or fracture (usually at the wrist, spine or hips). Spine fractures may result in a curved back, back pain or height loss. Risofos is used to correct the imbalance by decreasing the increased rate of bone removal. It can therefore help lower the risk of spine and non-spine fractures. It will not relieve the pain that occurs with bone fractures. Your doctor may prescribe another medicine specifically for pain relief.
If any of the following applies to you, Risofos may not be appropriate.
— You cannot swallow the tablet whole due to a physical problem, have an abnormality in your gullet, or suffer from Barrett’s oesophagus.
— If you have severe renal insufficiency
— If you a pregnant or breastfeeding
Before you use Risofos, speak to your doctor if you have one of these risk factors: cancer, radiotherapy of the neck and head, treatment with corticosteroids, or dental infections; if so, a dental checkup and any necessary dental procedures should be considered before you start treatment with Risedronate. Vitamin D and calcium also play a crucial role in strengthening bones. Your doctor may suggest vitamin D or calcium while you are taking Risedronate. If taken with some other drugs, the effects of Risofos 150 or other medicines may be changed.
Inform your doctor about all your medications, including the non-prescription ones. Vitamins, antacids, mineral supplements, and other medications (magnesium, aluminium, calcium, and iron) can stop your body from absorbing or using Risofos. These medications may be consumed at a different time of day than Risedronate.
Risofos 150 mg may cause problems in your oesophagus, stomach, and intestines, including ulcers. If you find difficulty swallowing, chest pain, heartburn, and black or bloody stools, stop taking the medication and tell your doctor immediately. In clinical trials, the most commonly reported side effects were nausea, heartburn, and abdominal pain.
Risofos is available as a daily or weekly tablet. Most people take it as a weekly tablet. Regardless of the dose and how often it is taken, you will be instructed to take Risofos at least half an hour before the first food or drink. It is also important that you avoid any other medication at the same time when you are taking Risedronate. This instruction is particularly important because Risofos will only be absorbed if taken on an empty stomach. If you are taking a calcium supplement, it is important to leave at least 3 to 4 hours after taking this medicine, as calcium will prevent its absorption. For best results, continue taking tablets regularly for the appropriate length. Risedronate is generally prescribed for the long term, so you need to be happy while taking the medication. Although you must take the tablets as instructed.
