Thank you soo much for reporting on this! It is really sad that this hasn't become big news in the media.(Makes me wonder if the pharmaceutical companies are working overtime to squelch it.) I and my friends have used strontium citrate with amazing success in increasing our bone density values. It sure beats what my Dr. calls Fosomax - "liquid draino".

While Fosamax is designed to help with bone density for osteoporosis patients. Many have begun to file a Fosamax lawsuit because of the drugs side effects.

There is considerable support for the use of strontium citrate as a bone enhancing drug, but as always anyone looking to take this drug should see if they tolerate and respond to it well before committing to any drug,

Self treatment? The Food and Drug Administration would be very interested.

Lots of side effects. Most of Hawaii's health problem stem from shoveling white rice down their necks like they're going to run out in the next ten minutes. Most won't live long enough to have old age deseases like osteo, Diabetes gets them in their forties. I should open a wheelchair franchise for locals without legs.

Strontium citrate is an effective drug by all account but has risks and problems of its own. Check with your doctor first and know what treatment option is most appropriate for you.

It's not some new miracle drug, it's a dangerous old drug that is being re-hawked as something new. Try telling the truth.

This may be a promising relief for people afflicted with ostoeporosis. Many people with this bone disease may have not only endured the symptoms and struggles of weakened bones but as well as the side effects from medications. http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net has featured information that presents potentially harmful side effects experienced by some patients.

And you're selling it, right?

Wow! Thanks for this report. It's nice to find out something positive about this issue besides the controversy brought about by the lawsuits of Fosamax and other bisphosphonate drugs. A metacarpal fracture is a relatively common condition characterized by a break in one of the long bones of the hand. Itís a huge risk to move or touch it because it can cause a dislocation of the bone. You should rest and go to the doctor Immediately.

Related health input, defective hip devices may cause health complications. Serious hip injuries, dislocations, or fractures can lead to Avascular Necrosis, medical specialists say. It is a condition wherein blood supply to the ball (the ball-shaped piece of bone that fits into the socket of the hip) portion of the thighbone is cut off and the bone begins to break down. As a result, the surrounding cartilage also begins to collapse, producing acute pain and other symptoms. If you feel that there is something wrong with your hip device, immediately consult your doctor. For a more detailed explanation, visit http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

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. For more information, you may refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com

People should be aware of the side-effects associated with taking bisphosphonate medications like Fosamax. Among these side-effects are atypical femur fractures, osteonecrosis of the jaw and esophagial ulcers. While bone loss prevention medication have benefits they are not for everyone. Learn more about them here. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/onj/
