Many cases of spontaneous fractures have been reported to be linked to the use of Fosamax. It may come to no surprise how a number of lawsuits may have been accumulating against the drug manufacturer. Fosamax has also been associated with other adverse effects which are featured at

Indeed, femur fractures have been previously linked to the use of Fosamax. It's daunting to know how bone drugs may have the potential to cause the health problems that patients are actually trying to avoid through this type of drugs and that's the risk of fractures. On top of fractures, Fosamax has also been associated with other adverse effects. Relevant material from be of great help.

This news is disheartening as it reminds us of the side-effects that many still taking bisphosphonates must still live with. Hopefully all this legal wrangling will come out with something positive for those involved. To find out more about bisphosphonates and osteoporosis read this:

Osteoporosis is a chronic bone disease characterized by a loss of bone mass that leaves bones weak and vulnerable to fracture. In preventing these disease, most patients take drugs called bisphosphonates such as Fosamax. However, several victimized patients of the harmful side effects of Fosamax have already filed lawsuits against its manufacturer. Similarly, with regard to defective hip replacement devices, legal experts report that numerous patients filed DePuy lawsuit against Johnson and Johnson. They were the victims of DePuy hip implants failures such as loosening, fractures, and displacements. More information here:

Once again a Pharma miracle drug turns one problem into another. Drugs supposed to end pain ends lives instead. The PHARMAFIA is maiming, killing and using consumers as free, but unknowing test subjects. For some bizarre its accepted that this for-profit industry can kill its customers and no Pharma owner or employee faces criminal charges or prison time. Name another industry that causes death that has its crimes forgiven like PHARMA.

Another legal claim serves as a reminder of how Fosamax may cause potentially crippling thighbone breaks. Let's just hope that as the Florida woman who won a Fosamax ONJ case over Merck, patients who filed lawsuits over a femur fracture injury claim may also achieve the same legal victory.

There have been many reports about the strange incidences of femur fracture in women who are using Fosamax. It is no more surprise that a number of lawsuits have been filed against its manufacturer, Merck & Co. Fosamax is also linked to other adverse side-effects such as ONJ, esophageal cancer and heart diseases. You may also refer at for more information.
