PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT TRISCARO & ASSOCIATES IS NO LONGER TAKING ON FOSAMAX CLAIMS.
Fosamax is a prescription drug used to treat osteoporosis. Millions of Americans have been prescribed Fosamax, which is manufactured by Merck & Co, Inc. It is also known by its generic name, alendronate. Fosamax is considered a bisphosphonate, which is used primarily to treat bone density issues in post menopausal women.
Certain medical studies have linked Fosamax to :
- Femur fractures: Usually, a straight line fracture. Studies have suggested a 3X greater likelihood of these types of fractures for those who have been on Fosamax for greater than 5 years.
- Bisphosphonates-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (BRONJ): long term use of Fosamax has been linked to BRONJ, which literally causes a dead jaw. Fosamax now contains a warning concerning BRONJ. Minor dental procedures, such as a tooth extraction when a person is on a bisphosphonate can lead to osteonecrosis. Once BRONJ sets in treatment can be extensive, including removing portions of the dead bone.
- Knee and Shoulder Joint Bone Deterioration
