What a stupid article. If you're not going to tell us the name of the drug, then don't bother publishing the article.

Women go through drastic body changes during menopause. Aside from common symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, menopause may also cause rapid bone loss in women that increases their risk of osteoporosis. Hormone replacement drugs used to be the mainstay treatment in preventing osteoporosis in women but due to the risk of adverse effects, bone drugs eventually became more popular. However, bisphosphonates have also not been exempted from controversies and reports of serious side effects in recent years. This article I've read at suggests how osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax may potentially cause femur fractures as its adverse effect.
