Bisphosphonates

Related Conditions of Bisphosphonates

Bisphosphonates are most often prescribed to treat osteopenia and osteoporosis, which are characterized by low bone density that over times makes bones frail and brittle. (Osteopenia is a condition in which there is lower than normal bone mineral density, but not low enough to be classified as osteoporosis.) Osteoporosis is most common in women who have gone through menopause, though men can get the condition too. These drugs can also be used to treat bone diseases such as Paget’s disease of the bone, a disorder characterized by abnormal bone destruction and regrowth that leads to deformities.
