Maybe not as large of an immediate problem, but maybe more effected with "brittle bones" - recommenation today is to GET OFF OF THE TOXIN at 3 years tops; and the POISON does not leave your bones for up to 10-15 years. They knew about this dangerous drug also, the SCIENCE OF FOSOMAX is obvious. Vioxx, Fosomax, Vytorin, Gardasil.... when are we going to learn; Merck is a murderous no hold barred, take no prisoners company. One thing to warn about a problem, but they are HIDING things.......

Add others to the list: Detrol (memory loss and confusion---hmm sound like early alzheimers?) how many missed diagnosis of that do we have? Think of how many seniors take that and then develop memory issues, so we just think...oh another victim of alzheimers...got to wonder?!!

Also Lipitor and the other statins...check out www.spacedoc.net , memory loss, amnesia, confusion, heart issues, muslce issues, etc.
It goes on and on.

Oh and lets not forget the "head meds" that we are all so in need of (apparently according to the ads). What kind of permanent damage are they doing?

I say, ANY medication you take every day is likely to cause something negative to happen!

I had my bad experience with migraine meds. I have little need for Drs. now as I have no respect for them anymore. So many are just simple drug pushers, but legal ones.

God help us...

I personally would not want another Vioxx in our pharmacology knowing that this drug works wonder in treating osteoporosis for some time. It is always best to keep track of your health status with your doctor if signs of adverse events are happening. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

Pharma's M.O. is as follows. Put out a fraudulent faulty product. Present bogus safety studies to get government approval. Market the hell out of it, and pressure and bribe doctors to use it. Deny all wrong doing when it hits the fan. Ascertain how much profit they have made and settle out of court for a fraction of it. Settling out of court is a get out of jail free card, because no wrong doing will be admitted or recognized, or revisited. It gives no amunition to follow up cases for the same product. Go from this profitable product to the next, and fight a simular set of litigations, settling out of court once again, and so on. It will never end. Their CEO'S will never spend a minute in prison for knowingly committing crimes against humanity, leaving the maimed and deceased in their wake.

Merck assures that there will never be another Vioxx. Fosamax Lawsuits are on the rise however with the information that Merck has already lost a lawsuit against a Florida woman.

It seems like yes is an obvious answer. However, everything is still undergoing different processes so we still have to find out. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fo...
