Osteoporosis in men is an increasingly recognized problem with associated fracture morbidity and mortality. Treatment is limited, with the bisphosphonates being the mainstay of therapy. Risedronate has demonstrated fracture efficacy in women and efficacy has been recently been investigated in men. In men, risedronate either maintains or increases bone mineral density.
