It seems almost every day that a similar question is asked and I say the same thing. The drug companies have to tell you if a drug is a combination drug. If it says its fosamax, its not aspirin, tylenol or anything other then fosamax. An example of the way a combination drug would state the active ingredients would be vicodin, which is hydrocodone/acetiminophen. It has both hydrocodone and acetiminophen. Why in the world would you think that a drug for osteoporosis would have aspirin in it?
