crave a cup of coffee when I wake up in the morning. I also really dislike waking up and drinking a glass of water. Are we supposed to take Fosamax upon awaking to be certain that we have an empty stomach? What if I have coffee and breakfast and then not eat or drink for at least seven hours. Then take the Fosamax late in the afternoon with a glass of water, wait 30 minutes, and then have dinner. Is there a reason other than an empty stomach that requires us to take the med upon awaking? If taking it the way I'm suggesting is OK, am I able to drink water during the day? Thanks for any advice you can give me.
I am supposed to take Fosamax once a week, but I find that I frequently stop taking it because I?

Ideally it's best taken in the morning but if you want to have coffee, etc and would like to not eat anything during the day then it would work. It's a good idea not to even drink water at least 4 hours before taking the dose.
