Fosamax: Friend or Foe?

Jaw Bone Death Lawsuit Information

When your trusted doctor prescribes a drug to reverse the signs of osteoporosis, you believe in the product and the healthcare process.

Unfortunately, Fosamax may be more of a foe than a friend to millions of women with osteoporosis.

Think about it. How long do Fosamax clinical trials last? Who knows what the ongoing side effects will be for 3 years, 5 years, 8 years, 10 years, 15 years, or forever? Is Fosamax meant to be taken forever?

Do You Have A Fosamax Case? »

It's a financial coup for big pharmaceutical companies to have consumers take drugs until death do us part. What's wrong with a marketing campaign or pill popper that lasts forever?

According to the Fosamax website:"You should not use FOSAMAX or FOSAMAX PLUS D if you have certain disorders of the esophagus (the tube connecting the mouth with the stomach), are not able to stand or sit upright for 30 minutes, have severe kidney disease, low blood calcium, or are allergic to FOSAMAX or FOSAMAX PLUS D. Before use, talk to your doctor if you have, or have had, stomach or digestive problems or problems with swallowing. You should tell your doctor about all medicines you are taking, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements."

"Stop taking FOSAMAX or FOSAMAX PLUS D and call your doctor right away if you develop new or worsening heartburn, difficult or painful swallowing, or chest pain because these may be signs of serious upper digestive problems, which can include irritation, inflammation, or ulceration of the esophagus."

At the end of December 2008, the New England Journal of Medicine cited a letter by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revealing that there were 23 cases of esophageal cancer since Fosamax came on the market in 1995. Some of these patients have since died.

Fosamax is not without other serious and quality-of-life diminishing side effects such as heart arrhythmia. A 2008 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that women taking Fosamax are about 7 percent more likely to develop atrial fibrillation compared to 4 percent who never took the osteoporosis drug.

What's worse? Bone loss? Esophagus cancer? Atrial fibrillation?

Have you, or your wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, or partner developed a life threatening condition like esophagus cancer, atrial fibrillation, or other serious side effects from taking Fosamax for osteoporosis?
