Alendronate Drug Whether It Can Be Consumed By Children 10 Years
good afternoon doc
Hello Kharisma, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to the questions you give, to be honest the questions you give are beyond my competence to answer them. But I will say a few things that might help you understand the drug. Alendronate is a drug from the bisphosphonate group that functions to maintain bone health, prevent, and treat osteoporosis. Osteoporosis itself is a reduction in bone density, which in turn can cause bone loss or breakage easily. This condition is generally found at age> 35 years, but can also occur in children / adolescents who are often referred to as secondary osteoporosis. Regarding giving alendronate to children / adolescents can be done, based on this research. Oral administration of Alendronate is considered more effective, and inexpensive compared to the use of intra venabisphosphonate. For more details, you can use HealthReplies.com mobile chat, and ask the doctor Ortopedhi for the problem.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
