Fosamax Plus D is a prescription medication that combines two active ingredients: alendronate and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3).

Alendronate is a bisphosphonate medicine that helps to slow down bone loss and increase bone density. It works by inhibiting the activity of cells that break down bone, thereby reducing the risk of fractures and improving bone strength.

Alendronate is commonly used in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis, a condition characterized by weak bones.

Cholecalciferol, known as vitamin D3, is a form of vitamin D that is naturally produced in the skin when exposed to sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for the body to absorb calcium from the diet and maintain healthy bones. It plays a crucial role in regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the body.

Fosamax Plus D is primarily indicated for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and is prescribed to help improve bone density and reduce the risk of fractures. The combination of alendronate and cholecalciferol in Fosamax Plus D provides both bone-strengthening effects and the necessary vitamin D supplementation.
