It's good that more and more information on the potential side effects of a drug like Fosamax are coming to light. This information can be good for those who have filed a Fosamax lawsuit. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

Are there many studies developed for this? I find it hard believing it and it makes me think that its just a ploy to keep us away from the real issue. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fo...

How reliable is this study? Was it able to establish a direct link? Is there really a concrete proof linking genetics to osteoporosis? Did the study consider the effect of some drugs which has been reported to cause these complications? http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fe...

The side-effects of Fosamax are well-understood but the fact remains that this drug continues to be marketed and there are many who are not aware of it's dangers. The more people are made aware the better informed people will be about making their decisions. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/femu...

Knowing how some medications may be cheaper in some countries but more expensive in the U.S. raises several concerns. One would think how this may have been manufactured, if the quality has been maintained. It may also imply how costs have been increasingly getting difficult to meet in the U.S. Visit http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net

In relation to this, please know that hip surgeries could be fatal to one’s health if defective hip devices are used. DePuy hip replacement device is example of a defective medical product. It extreme cases, these hip devices may completely fail which will result in a more severe health complication. Additional input here: http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com
