California Fosamax Side Effects Lawyers
WARNING: Hundreds of cases of a rare disorder called Osteonecrosis (necrosis of the jaw) have been linked to the prescription Fosamax.
The bisphosphonate drug Fosamax made by Merck, which is also sold as Actonel, Zometa, and Aredia, has been prescribed to patients since its approval by the Food and Drug Administration in 1995 to treat men with decreased bone mass, women who have experienced menopause and suffer from osteoporosis, and individuals who have specific types of cancers, including bone, prostate, lung, and breast cancers. The medication has also been prescribed to patients to prevent osteoporosis, in an attempt to lessen the chance of bone fractures. Doctors have found that fosomax may be responsible for very painful side effects that occured in some of their patients.
Dangerous Fosamax Side Effects
Hundreds of cases of a rare disorder called Osteonecrosis (necrosis of the jaw) have been linked to the prescription Fosamax. Osteonecrosis destroys bone tissue and causes severe pain in the mouth, and may result in swelling, tooth loosening, oral infections, and exposed bones in the mouth. In certain cases of Osteonecrosis (also called jaw bone death and jaw Osteonecrosis) reconstruction surgery may be a necessary form of treatment.
In November 2005, the labeling of Fosamax has been changed to include information regarding serious side effects and health risks associated with the drug, which include Osteonecrosis of the jaw.
