What happens if I "forget" and eat something before the 30 minutes is up after taking my weekly?

There's a significant reduction in absorption of the alendronate. If this has happened as a one off then it's okay but if it happens all the time then the reduced amount of alendronate absorbed will probably not be as beneficial as if you waited for 30 minutes after your dose, to eat something.
