thanks. she put me on alendronate sodium for osteoporosis. I have to take in the morning and not to lay down or eat for a hour. I am on omeprazole which I take every morning . I read that there is no interactions between them but to take omeprazole 2 hours after taking alendronate. is that correct?

Brief Answer:
Yes.You are correct.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.Welcome to Healthcare magic.
You are correct.Alendronate should be taken on empty stomach.After taking alendronate,do not lie down for 30 minutes.It should be taken with one glass of water.
Any medications should be taken half an hour after taking alendronate.These measures are followed to prevent oesophageal erosions.
Thank you.
If you have no other queries,kindly close the conversation and rate the answer.
All the best.
