Weaver & Associates shows links with Fosamax to spontaneous bone fractures.
Fosamax® was designed for strengthening bones. Yet, on the contrary, in some cases, clinical research cases indicates the opposite, causing bones to fracture instead.
Recent research shows some Fosamax patients have been injured from fractured bones, specifically the femur, which is normally the most dense bone in a human body.
Researchers discovered that specifically women on Fosamax have a 125 times greater likelihood for suffering a femur break due to falls than those women who are not on the drug.
Pharmaceutical and medical insiders point to the potential hazardous side effects were comprehended literally for years before the findings were officially released by the drug’s maker. In the year 2008, FDA officials reached out to Fosamax’s maker, Merck, regarding continuous tips which linked Fosamax with femur breaks. Unfortunately, Merck took a year and 4 months for a total of over 16 months to include femur fractures on the side effects list included with the package’s side effect insert.
Additionally, spontaneous, low intensity-induced femur breaks from Fosamax can also cause osteomyelitis, which is inflammation of the marrow in the bone, and jaw osteonecrosis (ONJ).
On the 13th of October, 2010, FDA officials issued a public alert warning doctors regarding the potential for severe bone injuries and bone pain linked with bisphosphonate medications like Fosamax. Although hundreds of these lawsuits against Merck from Fosamax have been filed, research and even warnings by the FDA, Merck still sells the drug Fosamax.
