I get coffee the minute I wake up every day. On occasion I will grab a cup and with the first sip, probably only 1/4 teaspoon or less than a teaspoon, I remember that it is my fossmax day. I.feel that even though this is probably not 100% jt is better to take the fossmax than forget it and risk getting totally off schedule. Can you please comment. I can not believe that this would totally make taking it void. I think that there would be only a small reduction in results and better to take it than forget for a week . Comments???
The amount of Fosamax available to the body is significantly reduced if taken with coffee...
If you are taking Fosamax once a week, and you wake up and have a sip of your coffee you are best not to take the tablet. You should take it the morning after. Then return to your original once-weekly schedule on the chosen day.
This is from the FDA monograph for Fosamax.
"... Concomitant administration of alendronate (Fosamax) with coffee or orange juice reduced bioavailability by approximately 60%."
