Fosamax

North Carolina Fosamax lawyer

Fosamax (alendronate), which is manufactured by Merck, is used to treat osteoporosis and Paget's Disease. This bisphosphonate drug is prescribed to increase bone density, but may do the opposite. Fosamax is linked to osteonecrosis of the jaw ("dead jaw" or "jaw death"). Osteonecrosis is a severe form of bone damage in the jaw where the bone tissue does not heal after minor traumas. In dental procedures, patients are at risk when they take Fosamax.

Fosamax also is linked to femur fractures or thighbone fractures, according to a study in the Journal of Orthopedic Trauma. Most cases occur after tooth extraction and other dental procedures.

Fosamax side effects

Some users of Fosamax have described gastrointestinal tract problems, including, but not limited to:

  • Cramping
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Severe constipation (known as obstipation)
