Fosamax is a drug prescribed to help prevent and treat osteoporosis. It is most widely used by post-menopausal women on hormone replacement therapy, but there are risks.
If you use Fosamax, or have used it in the past, you know that it is marketed as a way to slow or prevent the bone-damaging effects of osteoporosis. What you may not know, however, will shock you.
The FDA has found that atypical fractures of the femur have become common in women who have taken Fosamax, or the generic versions, for an extended amount of time. These fractures happen suddenly and often occur just below the hip.
The FDA felt so strongly about the risks associated with this drug that they required Merck, the makers of Fosamax, to clearly state a risk of atypical subtrochanteric fractures on the warning label. Merck strengthened the Fosamax warning December 2011 and January 2012. Unfortunately for some, it was too late.
These femur fractures are sudden and can be devastating to the victim. This is why we are aggressively seeking those who have suffered one of these fractures while on Fosamax or shortly after taking it. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Rasansky Law Firm has a long history of aggressive, yet personal representation in cases involving unsafe and dangerous drugs. It is not your fault the drug manufacturer failed to adequately warn you of the risks and they should be held responsible for the danger done.
