Zometa Side Effects: Do you need an Zometa lawyer?

Jaw Bone Death Lawsuit Information

According to the FDA, Zometa (zoledronic acid) is a potent intravenous bisphosphonate. Zoledronic acid injection is indicated for the treatment of HCM (hypercalcemia of malignancy) and for patients with multiple myeloma (bone marrow cancer) and documented metastases from solid tumors in conjunction with standard antineoplastic (tumor cell) therapy.

Do You Have A Fosamax Case? »

The FDA received reports of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) in cancer patients who required dental surgery. Prior to the surgery, these patients were treated with Zometa. In 2003, Novartis updated the Zometa label to include the warning about dental surgery. For patients taking Zometa, dental surgery should be avoided at all costs. Even after stopping the use of Zometa, bisphosphonates remain in the body and there is no way of knowing how it will affect dental surgeries. Dead jaw is characterized by swollen and rotting jawbones which cause unbelievable pain and disfigurement.

Should I contact Novartis about my Zometa side effects?
You should contact your healthcare professional and have him/her file an adverse reaction report with the FDA. You should also consider contacting an expert Zometa attorney to discuss your legal rights. Also call the FDA MedWatch at 1-800-FDA-1088.
