Once patients hear of the potentially serious side effects of Fosamax, they often have questions such as: how long does it take for Fosamax to be removed from the body or how long for Fosamax to clear the system?
These are important questions because Fosamax has a long half life. Fosamax is designed to build up in your bones and thus may not exit your body as quickly as other types of drugs. While an exact time table is unknown, it is possible that Fosamax could still be present in your bones a year or more after you stop taking the drug.
If you are concerned about how long Fosamax remains in body or you have other questions about whether Fosamax is the right drug for you please speak to your doctor about your options for treating osteoporosis.
