While osteoporosis in women is more clearly defined and studied, it also occurs in men. Fosamax? (also known as alendronate) is a bisphosphonate and is used in the treatment of osteoporosis. Fosamax? decreases the rate bone cells are absorbed. This reduced absorption allows the body to increase bone density, which in turn reduces the risk of fracture.
