Fosamax, also known as alendronate sodium, is a drug used for the treatment of osteoporosis and complications from advanced cancers. It has become a quite popular drug due to its ability to slow bone loss while increasing bone mass; however recent reports are proving that Fosamax has several side effects that can be quite dangerous and severe to the patients who take the prescribed medication.
Patients who have suffered injury or harm after taking Fosamax may have means for a Fosamax lawsuit against the pharmaceutical company or drug manufacturer that produces this osteoporosis drug. In fact, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently updated the Warnings and Precautions section label of Fosamax and all bisphosphonate drugs approved to prevent and treat osteoporosis. The new label says that patients who take Fosamax are at risk of abnormal fractures of the thigh, or femur fractures. In addition to femur fractures, the USC School of Dentistry suggests that Fosamax also puts patients at risk for bone decay of jaw. Despite all of these warnings and risks, the drug manufacturer of Fosamax, Merck, failed to warn individuals of the defective nature of the drug, therefore may be held liable for those who do suffer injury, such as a femur fracture, or jaw bone deterioration.
