The efficacy of Fosamax in reducing the risk of fractures has been irrefutable, although some people find it ironic the long-term use of the drug may also cause spontaneous fractures in some patients. An article that I've read from has details about some of the adverse effects linked to the bone drug.

Merck is a criminal organization. The PHARMA industry is the only industry except maybe gun makers who are allowed to kill consumers and face no criminal charges or prison sentences. Where the FK is law enforcement?

Fosamax, as the first bone drug released into the American consumer market, offered much promise to postmenopausal women who may have been intimidated by the heart problems that hormone therapy has been reportedly associated with. Its efficacy has been well established over the past decade, however, its safety has been under scrutiny in recent years as it has been linked to femur fractures that seem to occur from little to no trauma. If you want to know more about Fosamax and its potentially serious side effects, may be of great help.

Fosamax may be beneficial to some extent but people need to know that it's the right medication for them as recent evidence suggests that not everyone may respond favorably to it which could result in side-effects like atypical fractures and osteonecrosis of the jaw. For more information on fractures and Fosamax, read this:

If you are diagnosed with osteopenia, CUís medical consultants strongly advise that non-drug measures be used to reduce bone loss instead of taking a bisphosphonate drug. Taking supplemental calcium and vitamin D can strengthen bones, as can walking, dancing, and other weight-bearing aerobic activities. Those exercises also build muscle and improve balance, both of which can help prevent falls that cause fractures. You can further reduce the risk of falls by limiting how much alcohol you drink, avoiding sleeping pills and by fall-proofing your home by keeping extension cords out of the way, installing grab bars in the bathroom and rubber mats in the bathtub or shower, and getting rid of loose rugs. You may also refer at for more information.
