This single arm study will assess patient preference for monthly Bonviva, versus daily or weekly alendronate or risedronate, in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Patients currently on a daily or weekly regimen of bisphosphonate therapy (alendronate or risedronate) will answer a questionnaire to identify patients who may benefit from a monthly Bonviva regimen. Eligible patients will then discontinue their present bisphosphonate treatment, and switch to monthly Bonviva 150mg po. At the beginning and end of Bonviva treatment, all patients will complete an Osteoporosis Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3-12 months, and the target sample size is 500+ individuals.
