WHAT IS RISEDRONATE ?
Risedronate is in a group of medicines called bisphosphonates (bis FOS fo nayts). It alters the cycle of bone formation and breakdown in the body. Risedronate slows bone loss while increasing bone mass, which may prevent bone fractures.
Risedronate is used to treat enlarged or misshapen bone due to abnormal bone destruction and growth (Paget’s disease) and thinning and weakening of the bone (osteoporosis) in men and postmenopausal women.
POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS:
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

chest pain, new or worsening heartburn;
difficulty or pain when swallowing;
pain or burning under the ribs or in the back;
severe or ongoing indigestion;
severe joint, bone, or muscle pain;
new or unusual pain in your thigh or hip;
jaw pain, numbness, or swelling; or
severe skin reaction--fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling.

mild stomach pain or upset stomach; flu symptoms, muscle pain; diarrhea, constipation; mild joint or back pain; or headache.
