Sanctura: Why take sandura. Fosamax (alendronate) is fine once a week.

Yes, OK: You can take the sanctura 7 days/wk and still use Fosamax (alendronate) in the morning on an empty stomach with a full glass of water, and stay upright for about an hour, on any chosen day of the week. These two meds do not have cross-interaction and so you should be fine. If you have other concern, consult doc. Good luck.
