My wife took herself off of Fosemax after 9 months, after learning of a class action law suit out of Texas courts regarding this issue.

Families need to be wary of what new drugs the medical system wants to "test" on our wife's. They have a lot more physical plumbing, so to speak, then we guys do.

Listen to the doc's, but judge whether or not their advice should be followed. The doc's are not always correct in their judgement.

According to an article that I've read, osteoporosis drugs like Fosamax can be dangerous to our health and can lead to a serious bone disorder. Because of hundreds of complaints, FDA warned the public of its risks and even recommended urges Merck to include warnings in the labels of Fosamax. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/up...

The change in the warning label has come too late for many who have filed a Fosamax lawsuit.Many have already been injured by the drug and are seeking compensation for their injuries. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

It is daunting to know that fractures may also come in as a serious side effect of a drug. Even moreso when the drug has been formulated and commonly prescribed the prevent them. While FDA may have issued a warning against these, this may not revoke the damage some patients may have already endured. Related information at http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net may be of great help to those who are concerned and interested.

It is alarming to know that this drug, which supposed to make your bones stronger, causes fractures. There are a number of individuals who have been injured and seeking compensation. You may visit at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com ./osteonecrosis-jaw/ for related information.

While it's true that the FDA did warn the public about the fracture risks of taking osteoporosis meds, they still have not issued a recall and have not issued proper guidelines for how to prescribe this medication to patients.
