Fosamax® Lawyers in Jacksonville

What happens when a drug designed to fight bone loss in women turns out to actually kill bone instead? This is the case for many users of Fosamax, a bisphosphonate designed to treat decreased bone density and osteoporosis in women of postmenopausal age. Unfortunately, the drug has been found to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw (a condition sometimes referred to as “dead jaw”) in some women. Read on for more information on the dangers of Fosamax and your legal rights:

Manufactured by Merck & Co. Fosamax was approved by the FDA in 2001. Since then, it has become a popular solution for postmenopausal women looking to offset the risks of bone loss and osteoporosis. However, some women experience the onset of osteonecrosis (ONJ) of the jaw, a serious condition in which the jaw bone actually dies due to poor blood supply. In addition, the drug has been linked to serious bone and muscle pain.

The FDA has attempted to educate medical professionals about the risks of Fosamax, and currently recommends that patients with a history of Paget’s disease, chemotherapy, cancer, or extensive dental work realize they have an increased risk of ONJ if they take Fosamax. Unfortunately, the drug is still manufactured and sold, presenting serious risks to some women.

What are your legal rights if you have suffered injury due to Fosamax? You could be eligible to file a civil lawsuit against Merck and claim compensation for your injuries. Potential damages include the costs of medical care, pain and suffering, lost wages, and any applicable rehabilitation. It is recommended that you pursue Fosamax litigation with the help of a Jacksonville injury lawyer with extensive experience in drug lawsuits.
