FDA should act on this issue the soonest possible time to avoid an increase in reported adverse events related to fosamax and femur fracture and to do away with fosamax lawsuits as well. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

Doctors should be alarmed about the kind of attention that the Drug and Food Administration is doing a supervision in regards with the medication due to its prevalent links to abnormal bone fractures. See also http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/hip-repla...

Things like this are just so sad because immediate actions are vital but cannot be given.

I don't know what is taking FDA too long to deal with the issue. Studies somehow showed the probability and some many adverse events have been reported by patients. These patients who suffer from bone fractures are waiting for the agency to rule out on the issue and also the general public in general are waiting to know for their safety and protection in terms of health.

This news is unfortunate as victims of Fosamax that was promised to help them according to manufacturer's, became a nightmare for them. What's worse is that federal regulator's are powerless to stop or enforce the laws that they are sworn to proctect us with.

Many patients take Fosamax to ultimately avoid the very complications of osteporosis which are fractures. To know that the medications you take may actually make way for more fractures instead of keeping them at bay is just as despiriting. Many patients may wonder if there's anything else they can do to avoid it. A prompt advise from the US FDA may surely help enligten them. http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/femur-fracture... may have relevant and useful information.

Unfortunately, theres been an upswing in women suffering atypical breaks in the femur the thighbone is normally a pretty strong bone after several years of taking the drug; some of the women had merely been walking when their leg suddenly snapped. This unusual type of fracture is slow to heal and can lead to disability. You may also refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com/com... for more information.

What happened to the people who suffered from abnormal bone fractures is tragic. Meanwhile, US FDA needs to enforce stricter regulations and guidelines for prescribing bisphosphonate medications to prevent more patients suffering from these sort of adverse side-effects. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/femur-fractu...
