Practically not a day goes by when the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax is not in the news.
There are serious health problems using Fosamax. Women and their doctors are waking up to the negative reports on Fosamax. Are you?
One of the country’s most diligent consumer groups, the US Drug Watchdog is sniffing out women who were using Fosamax for five years or more when their femur broke, and these poor women had to have at least one surgery to repair the problem.
Has this happened to you, your mother, your wife, your sister, your aunt, your best friend?
The US Drug Watchdog says that its greatest fear is that most women who break their femur will not make the connection between taking Fosamax and their broken femur.
Really, the correlation is shocking as Fosamax is supposed to strengthen bones not cause them to break. These negative reports on Fosamax continue to surface much to our disbelief.
On February 3, 2011, the Journal of the American Medical Association published an article about a Canadian medical study that focused on a higher risk of a certain types of thighbone fractures for women who took bisphosphonates such as Fosamax for long periods.
Yet, the news is slow to trickle down to the mainstream media and some doctors feel that the risk of femur fracture is slim and women should continue taking Fosamax because the benefits far outweigh the risks.
How do you feel about the serious health problems using Fosamax?
