Fosamax has been documented to cause jaw bone loss and dental decay. I don't know why they keep this product on the market. It's side-effects create problems worse than originally thought. Unfortunately, our big pharma companies prefer higher profit-margins than human safety, and I don't trust them at all. I realize many people rely on numerous medications that are beneficial, but too often, harmful side-effects are not disclosed. Even our physicians are not aware usually and are swayed by fast-talking, slick sales reps who push their drugs on unsuspecting victims, resulting in reaping billions in profits for their drug companies. There ought to be a law.

Well good point, and they dot't make money, unless you are sick and remain sick. A cure isn't profitable....

Yes and big pharma always want to keep brand products for releasing forever. I personally want to use Generic version like http://www.gomedstore.com/prescriptions/evist... - Cheaper and better for my empy pocket :D

I agree. And until now there are still several fosamax lawsuit filed against the manufacturer. It's the company's top earning product that is why it's still out in the markets. Merck is earning while patients suffer from Fosamax. That is not fair at all. And something should be done to stop the selling. Check this link http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/
