Fosamax Femur Fracture
Fosamax - Femur fracture lawsuits
Fosamax may cause a femur bone fracture, according to the FDA. Our lawyers are currently meeting with people who say the osteoporosis drug Fosamax caused this injury.
Fosamax is a prescription medicine for the treatment or prevention of osteoporosis (thinning of bone) in women after menopause. Fosamax is designed to reduce the chance of having a hip or spinal fracture (break), and is also used as a treatment to increase bone mass in people with osteoporosis. Like most drugs, it carries the risk for certain side effects.
Fosamax, manufactured by Merck & Co., is in a class of drugs called bisphosphonates. The FDA is currently reviewing reports to see if there is an increased risk of atypical subtrochanteric femur fractures—fractures in the bone just below the hip joint—in some patients who've been on these drugs for several years.

Fosamax side effects, femur fracture, lawsuit information
Our firm is currently meeting with people who took Fosamax and sustained a femur fracture. This injury is specifically being referred to as "low-energy,"--that is, the Fosamax femur fracture typically occurs in a fall from a "standing height or less," such as stepping down stairs. This injury is very unusual because the femur is one of the strongest bones in the body.
