Well, it's a biphosphonate, just like all the other drugs used for osteoporosis.

I wasn't too informative... There's a thread here called 'Alendronate sodium' from not that long ago, where it's explained how it works. Alendronic acid is also a biphosphonate. New or old, a biphosphonate's effect on the body is always the same.

It's gonna take someone's extraordinary brain effort (or stroke of luck) to find a substance that actually stimulates bone production. Until then we're stuck with all these 'new' biphosphonates.

Your response caused me to search more about Atelvia myself.  Other bisphosphonates were listed, and I have already tried some in the past. The pills resulted in serious stomach problems. I'll keep looking for something that I can tolerate.
