According to the FDA, Aredia (pamidronate disodium) is a potent intravenous bisphosphonate which causes ONJ.
Pamidronate injection is indicated in conjunction with standard antineoplastic therapy (tumor cells) for the treatment of osteolytic metastases of breast cancer and osteolytic lesions of multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer), as well as hypercalcemia of malignancy (HCM) and Paget's Disease.
In 2002, the FDA received 9 spontaneous reports of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) in patients with malignancy whose treatment regiments included intravenous bisphosponates like Aredia and Zometa. In numerous cases there was a relationship to recent dental surgery.
Cases of jaw bone death have been reported since Aredia's introduction into the pharmaceutical marketplace. Novartis no longer markets Aredia.
Have you suffered jaw bone decay or ONJ after taking Aredia? Do you have other Aredia side effects such as incapacitating bone, joint, and other muscle pain? Have you experienced myalgia, hypertension, and anorexia from being prescribed Aredia?
Should I contact Novartis about my Aredia side effects?
No. You should contact your doctor and have your doctor file an adverse reaction report with the FDA. You should also consider contacting an expert Aredia lawyer to discuss your legal rights. Also call the FDA MedWatch at 1-800-FDA-1088.
