What is Fosamax?
Fosamax (alendronate), a bisphosphonate, is a drug prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis, particularly in post-menopausal women and complications from advanced cancers. However, even though it is known to be an effective drug in treating osteoporosis, in recent years there have been a number of studies that reported severe side effects that users have been affected by. In fact, The Journal of Bone and Mineral Research found that 94 percent of patients taking the drug Fosamax out of 310 cases experienced femur fractures. Femur fractures are not the only dangerous side effect recorded. The USC School of Dentistry also states that patients who take Fosamax are also at high risk for osteonecrosis (ONJ), a serious disease of the jaw that causes the jaw bone to deteriorate.
Fosamax Lawsuits For Femur Fractures & Jaw Bone Decay
Femur fractures and jaw bone decay are two of the most dangerous side effects of Fosamax. Symptoms such as difficulty or pain when swallowing, pain or burning under the ribs or in the back, severe heartburn, fever, body aches, and flu symptoms, as well as severe joint, bone, or muscle pain, are all important symptoms you should look out for when taking Fosamax.
Due to recent reports, the FDA recently updated the warning label on the osteoporosis drug. Fosamax now contains a label that warns patients who take the prescribed medication are more at risk to suffer from abnormal fractures of the thigh, or femur fractures. Patients suffering injuries after taking Fosamax do have legal rights and may have a possible lawsuit against Merck, the manufacturer of the drug. In fact, due to Merck's failure to warn individuals of the defective nature of the drug, they may be held liable for those who suffer femur fractures or jaw bone decay.
