Osteoporosis drugs known as bisphosphenatesincluding blockbusters like alendronate (Fosamax), ibandronate (Boniva), and risedronate (Actonel)are notorious for causing heartburn.
Newer formulations that are taken less frequently may be easier on the stomach.
Reclast, for instance, is an infusion drug that needs to be taken only once a year.
