We are going to have to come together and talk to the president about this drug Actonel and the others also. If we do not we are all going to die from it. And no one is going to be held accountable for Our deaths. We do not want to die from pharmaceuticals drugs and we do not have to die from medications and there side effects. If President Obama can talk to BP concerning the oil spill he can talk to us too. And in my heart I believe he will. Brenda Kidd

Fosamax has been linked to various ailments. femur fracture, osteonecrosis of the jaw and now esophageal cancer. The drug manufacturer Merck should consider this and conduct an in depth study on this before it can cause more harm to many.

This is a rare but difficult condition to treat that people should be mindful of when taking biphosphonate osteoporosis medication like Fosamax

Drugs in the biphosphonates class generally are quite effective when it comes to treating common bone-related problems such as spine fractures. But Fosamax has has issues regarding long-term use and its relation to causing atypical fractures. The site http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com has more info on this .

That sounds bad. High levels of metal in your blood is dangerous to your health. Ask your doctor about your inquiry. Know that various DePuy ASR lawsuit have been pursued by the victimized patients of the company’s defective hip devices.

It is uncertain if bisphosphonate drugs may cause esophageal cancers. However, use of oral bisphosphonates has been linked to inflammation of the esophags, called esophagitis, primary in patients who have not used the drug according to directions.
