For several years, there has been considerable litigation over Osteonecrosis of the jaw (the dying of the jaw bone ) associated with the use of Fosamax and other bisphosphonate drugs, which can remain in a patient’s system for up to ten years after discontinuation. More recent studies have shown that patients taking these osteoporosis drugs to strengthen their spines are suffering atypical femur fractures or thigh bone fractures. Some women have experienced bilateral femoral fractures, fractures in both thigh bones, which then requires extensive surgery and rodding. These cases are very clear and can certainly be related to Fosamax II.
If you know someone who has suffered either jaw or long bone fractures who had been taking Fosamax II for any period of time, please have them call the Law Offices of Christopher Ligori & Associates at (877)444-2929.
