The efficacy of Fosamax has indeed been highly regarded since it came into the market, however, its safety has also received scrutiny in recent years. Despite that, others perceive that the benefits of the drug still outweigh the risk of side effects. There are detailed articles at http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com that go through these adverse effects. They may have relevant information for those concerned and interested.

Good on her that she stood up to Merck and won. Much respect to her and I hope that she is able to find some measure of closure from this victory. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/onj/

It's good to know that that woman's suffering may finally have some closure. I wonder if others will be as fortunate as her? http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/upda...

After it has been found out that Fosamax, a bone drug manufactured by Merck & Co, is causing a lot of problems in women, such as strange incidences of femur fractures, the Food and Drug Administration has noticed that the drug is still heavily marketed to women. This pharmaceutical formulation has been also reported to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw (death of jawbone tissue), atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) and esophageal cancer. These unfortunate events have resulted to a number of lawsuits filed against Merck & Co. You may also refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com/com... for more information.
