Fosamax Lawyer

Fosamax, is a type of bisphosphonate, is a medicine that is prescribed to treat osteoporosis. Users of bisphosphonates like Fosamax should be aware that studies have found a connection between the drugs and a serious medical condition known as osteonecrosis of the jaw, or ONJ. Other drugs in the bisphosphonate category are Zometa, Aredia, Didronel, Boniva, and Actonel. Fosamax has additionally been linked to osteomyelitis of the jaw and low energy fractures of the thighbone.

Low Energy Fractures

The Journal of Orthopedic Trauma reported on Flosamax-related fractures of the thighbone or femur in its May/June 2008 issue. The reported study focused on people who experienced fractured femurs after falls from low heights and with low impacts, and found that 36% of them had been taking Fosamax for an average of four years. Subsequent revisions to the labelling of Flosamax aim to warn patients of the risks.

If you, or a loved one, have experienced a femur fracture as a result of taking Fosamax, then you may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. Let us evaluate your claim, free of charge, confidentially, and with no obligation. Call us at (866) 995-6663 to speak with a Massachusetts injury attorney today.

Osteomyelitis of the Jaw

Osteomyelitis of the jaw is an inflammation in the center of the bone, where the marrow is, spreading to the muscles around it. Many cases that have been associated with Fosamax have developed after dental procedures.

Osteonecrosis of the Jaw

Osteonecrosis of the jaw, also known as Dead Jaw, is a condition where the bone fails to heal after injury, causing the bone to be exposed. This can lead to infection and bone fracturing. Treatment often requires extensive antibiotic treatments and even surgery to remove dead bone tissue. Patients using Fosamax or related drugs are at elevated risk during major dental work, such as tooth extractions, and should try to avoid these procedures while on the drug.
