Millions of women and men have taken Fosamax and other similar drugs, all known as bisphosphonate drugs, to reduce the amount of bone loss they suffer because of osteoporosis or Paget's Disease. Unfortunately, these drugs have been linked to a condition known as osteonecrosis of the jaw or ONJ. ONJ is also referred to as "Dead Jaw." And the problem is not just with Fosamax. The other bisphosphonate drugs include Actonel, Aredia, Boniva, and Zometa. Many of these drugs are also responsible for jaw bone problems in those who have taken these drugs. If you have suffered ONJ as a result of Fosamax or another bisphosphonate, contact our law firm now for a free consultation. You may be facing a long term jaw bone problem. If you have taken Fosamax, you also need to know that it will remain in your body for a long time, perhaps ten to twenty years. Thus, long range effects on the jaw bone, or other bones like your femur, are still unknown. Reports are starting to surface about patients who have had dental or oral surgeries and then deterioration or death of jaw bones. Other reports are surfacing where Fosamax users are now suffering repeated fractures or fractures that do not heal to their femurs. These patients had one thing in common - they were taking Fosamax or bisphosphonate medications. If this has happened to your jaw bone or femur, please contact us.
