It looks things are going worse for this kind of drug which should serve a reminder for everyone to be careful.

Osteoporosis has afflicted mostly ageing men and women. To suffer from fractures from extremely weak bones, and a heart problem as a side effect of a drug that's indicated for another disease may be overwhelming. It helps to know where a patient may stand against these adverse effects. Current and comprehensive material at http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net may be of great help.

No clear association between oral bisphosphonate use and atrial fibrillation has been confirmed. However, mostly of the women who took oral bisphosphonates suffered from heart disease. Visit http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com/cla... for more related information.

While some prescription drugs can be necessary, the less you can get away with taking, the better off you will be. Most if not all of these drugs have side effects and some are so dangerous, they may not be worth the risk. I have arthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis but I refuse to take any drug for it because I don't need something else to go wrong. The result is that you end up being on other drugs to counteract the side effects of the other meds you're on. Not worth it, in my opinion.
