Fosamax was designed to fight bone diseases like osteoporosis, but for many people, it has done more harm than good. Drug studies have revealed that Fosamax (alendronate) can cause serious side effects, including thigh bone fractures and severe jaw bone problems (osteonecrosis).
Thousands of people have suffered the devastating side effects of Fosamax because the drug manufacturer, Merck, put the drug on the market before conducting sufficient testing. Patients were not accurately warned about the risks involved with taking alendronate and, as a result, many have suffered severe problems with their thigh and jaw bones.
At Simon Eisenberg & Baum, we help people who have suffered serious harm from Fosamax and other bisphosphonates. You shouldn't have to suffer because of the drug manufacturer's negligence; our Fosamax lawyers work hard to ensure that all wrongdoers are held accountable so that you can receive financial compensation for the harm caused to you.

Alendronate Side Effects Drug Recall News
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) recently published a study linking thigh bone fractures in women to extended use of bisphosphonates like Fosamax. The study helped explain unusual fractures that many women have suffered in their legs - fractures that occurred without any trauma or impact.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently began its own investigation into the severe side effects of alendronate. Its review of Fosamax is ongoing, but it did recently warn that women have an increased risk of breaking thigh bones when they take alendronate for longer than five years.
Fosamax side effects include:
- Femur fractures
- Osteonecrosis of the jaw, or "dead jaw"
- Esophageal cancer
- Atrial fibrillation
