Before releasing this new drug, it may be more important to sort the issues tied with Fosamax first because people are still complaining about its adverse effects. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

If it is true that Merck has found their replacement for Fosamax then people should be careful to notice any symptoms of complications from taking the medication. A repeat of the problems brought by Fosamax' would be tragic and senseless.

This new medication should be tested extensively unlike Fosamax which also needed it and needlessly caused suffering to those unaware of Merck's carelessness. People should be informed and careful of Merck's track record for "groundbreaking medication" by now.

Promising as it may seem, it has been established that the benefits that come with a medication may also be accompanied of certain side effects. Fosamax held much promise to people with bone diseases upon its introduction to the market, however, the drug has still been reported to cause even more bone pain instead of preventing them. Merck's newest drug may be a solution, although it's best to carefully monitor any potential risks that may arise. Information documented at http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/should-i-sue-m... may be of great help to people who endured additional health risks from Fosamax.

If odanactatib proves to be every bit as effective as Fosamax. Hopefully it is safer without the side-effects. Read more about Fosamax here. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us

Merck's previous bone drug, Fosamax, has been causing a lot of health problems, such as osteonecrosis and strange femur fracture to post-menopausal women. Although, it has been believed that Odana may work better than Fosamax, people may still need to discuss this to their doctors. You may also refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com .
