The battle wages on in US courts as many Fosamax lawsuits have begun to be heard. Lets just hope that those get what they deserve.

Recently, lawsuits over Fosamax maker, Merck have been growing more and more. Fosamax was supposed to treat osteoporosis and other bone problems by increasing bone mass and density. However, it has been linked to a rare jawbone disorder, esophageal cancer, chronic irregular heart beat and unusual bone fractures. You may also refer at for more information.

The initial concerns about the safety of Fosamax began as early as 2000 when the drug was linked to osteonecrosis (death of bone) of the jaw. The majority of these cases, however, were cancer patients receiving chemotherapy at the same time or had active dental disease. The FDA required that Merck update the warning label for the drug to include these possible side-effects. You may also refer at for more information.
