Osteoporosis is a debilitating bone disease with no symptoms. In most cases, a person wouldn't know he or she has acquired the disease it unless a fracture-related pain or fall has been experienced. Many people rely on medications to reduce the risk of subsequent fractures. However, there are some who may not feel strongly toward osteoporosis drugs due to adverse events that have been associated with them. Fosamax, for instance, has been linked to low-impact femur fracture, and a rare jaw disease. Relevant information from may be of great help to those who may be needing legal assistance.
