Hi there
We usually recommend bisphosphonate use to not be longer than 5 years, but depending on your risk factors, bone density etc, your dr can then evaluate whether you should continue with bone active medication or not and if necessary switch you to another drug or put you on a drug "holiday".
Hope this helps!
