14. How do the oral
bisphosphonates need to be taken? (be specific as far as how long
fasting, what liquids to be taken with and how long you have to wait to
eat/drink after taking them)
it requires you to have not food or drink for 60 minutes after taking thepill on an empty stomach takingthe medication with only water and must remain upright for at least 60 mintuesafter taking it.For #14 abouthow to take the oral bisphosphonates, that was great about only takingthem with water and for BONIVA (ibandronate) it is 60 minutes of nofood or drink after taking it besides remaining upright for that long. Isee on my Actonel and Fosamax slide along with my audio I did notmention that Fosamax and Actonel only need 30 minutes of nofood or drink and remaining upright rather than 60 minutes for Boniva. (Actonelis coming out with one that you can take with food, but not yet).
