  • Intravenous treatment with zoledronic acid is usually the first consideration, as it acts quicker and lasts longer, however, treatment can be given orally using Risedronate.

  • The most commonly used oral treatment is 30mg of risedronate sodium, daily, for two months.

  • If necessary, the course can be repeated. 

  • Risedronate helps relieve pain from active Paget’s disease with effects that can last for 2 years or more. The duration of effect is not as long as that of zoledronic acid.

    Risedronate: 30mg daily for 2 months.
