The popular drug Fosomax, manufactured and marketed by Merck & Co, is part of a group of drugs called Bisphosphonates used to treat, prevent, and even reverse the bone loss association with osteoporosis. In recent years users of this popular drug were shocked to learn of dangerous new side effects being associated with the drug.
A study in the May/June issue of the Journal of Orthopedic Trauma has linked Fosomax to low energy femur fractures (thigh bone fractures). The drug has also been linked to osteonecrosis, or dead jaw - recently the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery reported that 10% of the 63 cases of osteonecrosis had been using Fosomax.
A class action lawsuit was brought against the makers of Fosomax in Spring of 2006 charging that Merck & Co knew about the associated dangers and purposely hid them from customers. The lawsuit also states that there is somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 million users of Fosomax.
