is one of the product names for Risedronic acid, a pharmaceutical product used to strengthen bones and treat osteoporosis. Manufactured and marketed by Warner Chilcott, Sanofi-Aventis ( a marketing partner of Proctor and Gamble) and Takeda, it is also known as Atelvia or Benet. A form of the drug is also available with a calcium supplement.
Risedronate is what is known as a bisphosphonate drug, which research has show tends to be associated with osteonecrosis of the jaw, a serious medical condition that causes cells in the jaw bone to die.
In 2006, Proctor & Gamble filed a lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline and Roche, marketers of Boniva, a competing product, alleging false advertising. The attempt to obtain an injunction preventing the sale of Boniva was rejected by the court, and Proctor and Gamble subsequently faced an investigation regarding its handling of clinical research tied to Risedronate.
