When will Fopsamax be available as a generic to the public?


#2 Feb 8, 2008
I was hoping it would never be available.
This drug causes nothing by pain and suffering
to many women and shame on the FDA for allowing
them to make a generic version of this drug.

I really do not understand what is going on in this world ..
we have the so called bisphosphonates named (fosamax, boniva, actonel). Those are pure poisen, stay in your body for decades, leads to necrosis of the bone (not only in the jaw!), irregular hearth rythm which is a strong sign for strokes, thousand's of people report that they have abnormal pain and do feel like 20 years older.
Then there is evista which has also an increased stroke risk plus cancer. Just do some googling and you ll find out that this is all true!

For me it is crystal clear that I only take the nasal spray of calcitonin. My rheumatologist told me that it is not as effective as the others so I googled again and found an independent report saying that none drug class is superior. http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/i...
So why would anyone not go for the treatment that is the safest and has no serious side effects .. I just don't get it!

There is a natural solution with no side effects. Natural Option corp has developed a calcium supplement to help osteporosis sufferers. Look and read for yourself. http://www.naturaloptioncorp.com

Merck has lost its case to the FDA to disallow generic versions of Fosamax to reach the market. However with new generic drugs come more potential side effects and thus a new batch of Fosamax lawsuits. http://www.rotlaw.com/fosamax/

The FDA approves anything its parent Pharma makes. Remember VIOXX? Killed 88,000 and no owner of MERCK or its CEO or any FDA employee was charged criminally. The FDA is run by those 3 monkeys, C.Noevil M.D. Hear Noevil and Speak Noevil (about Pharma) I think they are related with the same last name and all.

So, let's say some people gets affected of osteonecrosis of the jaw or femur fractures, can they file a complaint against a generic Fosamax drug? http://fosamaxsideeffects.blinkweb.com/

This does not sound good. We all know the issues that surround Fosamax so I'm pretty shocked with the approval of this generic one. Things have not been straightened up with Fosamax yet. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

It's good to know that generic forms of Fosamax have been made available to the consumer market. This means affordable osteoporosis drugs for many patients. However, this may not be a legal advantage if ever side effects will be encountered. Visit http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net for information that may be of great help.

I would be cautious of the rising availability of Fosamax/alendronate especially with the serious side-effects associated with it causing so much legal controversy. If you need to avail of this drug, you should be aware of the side-effects before risking your life for benefits you are looking to get and you should plan drug vacations from the drug if you're planning to take the medicine over the course of years to minimize any side-effects. Don't forget to inform your dentist if you're taking this drug as it may impair your jaw's ability to heal itself after a dental procedure. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/femu...

This may sound good news to people who are suffering from osteoporosis. But many are still concerned that it might just have similar or more adverse effects compared to conventional bone drugs. Bisphosphonate drugs are known to cause unusual bone fractures, cancers and irregular heartbeats. For more information, you may also refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com
