IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING OUR SERVICE DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Covid-19 Service Update

At North Drugstore, the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. Due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic affecting us all, there have been some changes within our industry in general, and in our company specifically, that we want to make our customers aware of.

Call Center

Our current call center hours of operation are 6AM – 9PM every day, seven days per week. If you are experiencing increased hold times or are calling outside of these hours, please leave us a message or send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Due to increased demand on telephone networks worldwide, you may experience some intermittent connection problems. If this happens our agents will call you back.

Shipping

We are currently seeing delays in our regular shipping times. Our normal shipping time averages 1 - 2 weeks. Shipments may now take an additional 2 – 4 weeks or more to arrive, depending on the source country of your order.

Please note that these times are averages and individual shipping times will vary. We highly recommend that you place your order at least 2 – 4 weeks or more ahead of your normal reorder time to avoid running out of your medication.

These are industry-wide delays and are mainly occurring due to disruptions in local postal delivery in the countries where our customers live. They are temporary, and we thank the shipping and delivery personnel who are working hard for all of us during this global crisis.

Please Note: As these types of shipping delays are not within our direct control, we are temporarily adjusting our regular Shipping Guarantee from 30 days to 60 days. We will provide updates as the situation changes.

Our Commitment

If you have any questions about any changes in our service please do not hesitate to contact us. Our staff are working tirelessly to ensure the timely fulfillment and delivery of all orders. The health of our customers and staff is our highest priority and we remain committed to providing service at the highest level.

We thank you for your support in these challenging times.

Full information about Fosamax

General Information on Fosamax

Fosamax is used to curb calcium loss in the bones. As a result, the drug prevents further bone loss in patients affected by osteoporosis.

The active ingredient in the drug is Alendronate, and it belongs to the category of bisphosphonates.

Fosamax slows down bone loss so that stronger bones can be maintained and chances of fractures are decreased. It is available in an oral liquid form as well as tablets.

Fosamax can also be used to prevent bone loss in post-menopausal women and patients who have been using corticosteroids for a long time.

Side effects of Fosamax

Before you buy Fosamax, inform your doctor if you are suffering from a kidney disease, dental disease, low blood calcium levels, stomach, esophageal or intestinal problem (such as GERD and acid-reflux), difficulty swallowing, or a vitamin D deficiency.

You will need to receive sufficient concentrations of calcium and vitamin D during Fosamax treatment. Therefore, talk to your doctor about the dietary adjustments you may have to make during treatment.

Fosamax may increase the sensitivity of your skin to sunlight. Therefore, avoid getting exposed to the sun for as long time as is possible. Avoid being exposed to other sources of UV light too, including tanning beds and UV lamps. If going out is inevitable, you must wear appropriate clothes that protect your skin from the sun and apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15.

Symptoms like difficulty or pain while swallowing, heartburn, or stomach pain are commonly experienced by most Fosamax patients. Other common side effects of the drug include stomach gas or fullness, constipation, diarrhea, headache, bone, muscle or joint pain, changes in taste, nausea, or skin rash. Although these are mild side effects of the drug, you should inform your doctor immediately any of these become intolerable.

Some serious side effects of Fosamax include eye pain, eye inflammation, skin rash, constant jaw pain, swelling of the throat or tongue, burning or cramping of the jaw, tarry or black stools, vision changes, excessive vomiting, or swelling of the face, lips, arms, or legs.

Some hypersensitive patients may develop an allergic reaction to Fosamax. Symptoms of such a condition include hives, severe dizziness, difficulty breathing, or swelling or itching of the face, tongue, throat, or lips. Discontinue Fosamax and seek medical attention immediately if you suffer from any of these symptoms.

Dosage of Fosamax

Your doctor will ask you to take Fosamax once a day on an empty stomach. The time of dosage would usually be in morning just after you wake up. If you take the drug at bedtime, your body may not absorb it properly and your symptoms may worsen as a result.

After taking Fosamax oral liquid, you must avoid any solid or liquid food for at least 30 minutes.

Avoid lying down after taking the drug, as Fosamax can lead to throat irritation in some patients. Stay upright so that the drug pass through your throat.

Drug Interactions of Fosamax

If you are also taking any antacid or mineral supplement along with Fosamax, you should maintain a gap of 2 hours between the doses. Also do not buy Fosamax and use it along with NSAIDs, as they may interact with Fosamax and cause stomach irritation or ulcers.
