Women: Do you sometimes feel like the pharmaceutical companies are using your bodies as science experiments?
For the past decade or more, healthcare professionals have been prescribing oral bisphosphonate drugs like Fosamax for post menopausal women (and men) to build bones by improving bone density and prevent osteoporosis.
Millions of women have trusted their doctors who trusted big pharmaceutical companies like Merck, Inc., the makers of Fosamax, to build bones in order to prevent catastrophic injuries related to falling and fractures.
Now, some doctors are hitting the pause button and rethinking the long term use of Fosamax because women in greater numbers are suffering from spontaneous femur fractures also known as thigh bone fractures.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Women are taking Fosamax to build bones not to break bones. Are the risks of thigh bone fractures, jawbone death, the possibility of developing heart arrhythmia, and serious eye inflammation more risky than beneficial?
Where does all the risk end – heart, mouth, eyes, and bones?
If you or a family member suffers from a serious side effect, such as thigh bone fracture, caused by taking Fosamax – please take action now and contact Monheit Law to find out what your legal options are.
