Different bone drugs have stirred up controversies due to a string of adverse effects that have been reported to occur in several patients. It may be a relief to know that the FDA panel are now in discussion of this important topic. Fosamax has been connected to inadvertent effects including femur fractures, an effect that one may think of as ironic. For more information as regard the side effects of Fosamax, up-to-date material from http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com may be of help.

People should be careful on the medications they take and surgeries they undergo because these may just worsen their condition like the defective medical products. For instance, the DePuy hip replacement devices that are supposed to alleviate hip pain, but due to defectiveness, they cause patients to suffer more. See http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

The FDA needs to stand by their decision and enforce their recommendations regarding the dangers associated with taking Fosamax. The federal regulators need to enforce their own policies especially with regards to its risks. For more information read this: http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com

It can't be denied that osteoprosis drugs help protect patients from further osteoporosis damage, although the risk of adverse effects is also part of the package. Fosamax, for instance, while it has been proven to reduce the risk of fractures, has also been linked to a rare jaw disease that leads to the death of the jawbone.
