In the end its up to the doctor and the patient to decide if the benefits of Fosamax outweigh the potential side effects. The doctor must always inform the patient of any potential side effects of the drugs that are prescribed to them. This is to avoid any Fosamax lawsuits. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/
