Widely used osteoporosis drugs such as Fosamax and Actonel significantly raise the risk for a rare but serious thigh fracture and that risk rises the longer patients take the medicines, a new study found.

I really like posts that make sense like the one you just posted. Writing involves a lot of extraordinary skills and yours is really worthy of praise. I hope I can also convey my advocacy on health care for the protection of people who may be victims of medical products like those who suffered from Fosamax bone fractures as a consequence. It would be rewarding. Thank you for sharing your insights.

This is the reason why everyone of us must be extra careful of the medicine we are taking. Researching about the medicine and asking your doctor about will be a very big help.

I agree with what's been posted here. More people need to be aware of the complications associated with these medications. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com/femu...

The efficacy of Fosamax in increasing bone mass has long been proven, however, it's long-term safety has been under so much scrutiny since the incidence of thigh fractures have started to surface. People have been taking Fosamax in an effort to prevent the risk of painful fractures, and it's disheartening to know that it may also come in as a side effect. http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/femur-fracture... may have more relevant information.

The dangers of Fosamax and other bisphosphonates have been proven and should not be taken lightly by those who take them. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

Have you heard about this? Newly-released information presented that about 12 to 13 percent of patients who received one of the recalled hip implants needed a replacement surgery after just five years. DePuy is a subsidiary company of Johnson and Johnson, which issued the worldwide DePuy hip replacement recall. See http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com

Rare atypical femur fractures are one of the things that Fosamax manufacturer Merck are facing allegations of negligence and compensation suits against. Anyone looking to take any bisphosphonates and not just Fosamax, Boniva and Actonel should be aware of Fosamax' sordid history of drug safety which the FDA now warns against taking for a long period of time.
