Atelvia Information:

What is Atelvia?

Atelvia is a bisphosphonate drug that is used to slow bone loss in post-menopausal patients with osteoporosis. Bone tissue goes through a constant turnover process where old cells are absorbed by osteoclasts and new cells are generated by osteoblasts. Bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclasts, slowing the breakdown of bone tissue while allowing osteoblasts to continue to create new tissue. 

How do I take Atelvia?

Atelvia tablets are only taken once a week, which is a total of just four doses per month. Atelvia should be taken immediately after breakfast with at least four ounces of water in order to get the medication to the stomach as quickly as possible. Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes after taking your medication. Never cut, rush or chew these tablets. Atelvia can cause damage to the esophagus if not taken correctly. If you are taking any vitamins or supplements, take them at least 30 minutes before taking Atelvia.

Before taking Atelvia, tell your doctor if:

  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients in this medication and if you have any allergies.
  • You are taking any other prescription or nonprescription medications, especially chemotherapy drugs, NSAIDs, aspirin, corticosteroids and antacids.
  • You are taking any vitamins or herbal supplements.
  • You haven’t experience menopause.
  • You regularly smoke or drink alcohol.

What are the possible side effects of taking Atelvia?

Possible Atelvia drug side effects include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Tell your doctor if any of these side effects are severe or persistent. Other more serious side effects that you should report immediately include severe bone or joint pain, jaw pain, hip, thigh or groin pain, vision problems, new or worsening heartburn, chest pain, black stools, difficulty swallowing and vomit that looks like ground coffee. This medication may cause osteonecrosis of the jaw. Be sure your dentist knows you are taking this medication and be sure to properly clean your teeth.

What if I forget to take a dose of Atelvia?

Atelvia should only be taken in the mornings after breakfast, so if you miss your weekly dose, wait until the next morning to take your pill after breakfast and then continue on your regular routine. Do not ever take extra medication to try to make up for a missed dose.

How do I store Atelvia?

Store Atelvia in its original container or packaging. Keep this medication at a room temperature between 68 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit and protect it from light and moisture. Keep this medication out of reach of children and pets.

What happens if I overdose on Atelvia?

Atelvia drug overdose may result in hypocalcemia. Symptoms include twitching or spasms, muscle cramps, irritability, depression, confusion, irregular heartbeat and vision changes. If you think you or someone you know has overdosed on Atelvia, call the Poison Control Center at 1-800-222-1222. If symptoms are severe or the victim is unresponsive, call 911.


Your doctor will provide other lifestyle-related instructions to help slow osteoporosis. Follow your doctor’s recommendations for best results. Atelvia may cause ONJ. Tell your dentist before you start taking this medication.
