Fosamax Side Effects May Cause ONJ

No Comments

Fosamax Side Effects Lawyers have been following a current study which has linked femur fractures to the use of the drug Fosamax. The Fosamax side effect causes a serious bone condition called osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ). This condition prevents the bone tissue of the jaw from healing after minor dental trauma — such as a tooth extraction.

According to Your LegalGuide.com, one lawsuit involved a 60-year old woman who was treating her osteoporosis with the drug. Her six plus years of using the drug caused her to develop ONJ. The results were horrifying. ONJ caused rotting in her mouth which exposed bone in her jaw. Ultimately, the effects of osteonecrosis can cause a person’s jaw to rot and die.

According to an Associated Press news report, the products were manufactured in China and imported by the company. Apparently, these baby walkers lack mechanisms to prevent babies from falling down the stairs. Also, these walkers can fit through standard doorways. Therefore, their size doesn’t prevent them from entering rooms with stair access. So far no incidents have been reported in connection with these products.
