When drugs are approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), does that mean they are completely safe? That’s a matter of opinion.

Zaltrap is being approved with a Boxed Warning alerting patients and health care professionals that the drug can cause severe and sometimes fatal bleeding, including gastrointestinal bleeding, and the development of holes in the gastrointestinal tract. Zaltrap can also make it more difficult for wounds to heal.

The most common side effects observed in patients receiving Zaltrap plus FOLFIRI were decreased white blood cell count, diarrhea, mouth ulcers, fatigue, high blood pressure, increased amount of protein in the urine, weight loss, decreased appetite, abdominal pain, and headache.

Health in a bottle is not always as safe as you may believe. Again the really sad reality is, Cancer was cured in America as early as 1913 and the true remedies have been suppressed to put “Profits Over People”, or their good health.

If the reports of the side-effects of Zaltrap are true then I hope people are made aware of the dangers they face when they pin their hopes of a cure for their cancer on a drug that may exacerbate their problems as much as solve them.

Patients of certain kinds of cancer may also suffer from bone pain, or bone metastases (cancer that has spread to the bones). This is where osteoporosis drugs such as Fosamax come in. Although they have been reported to help osteoporosis and cancer patients alike, the risk of side effects may still be impending. It helps to be aware. News and updates about Fosamax found at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com may be of great help to people concerned and interested.
