Actonel is in a class of drugs called bisphosphonates and is used for the treatment of Paget’s disease (a disease in which the formation of bone is abnormal) as well as for osteoporosis. Actonel is also used prescribed to treat osteoporosis caused by steroid (cortisone-related) medications that trigger osteoporosis.
Actonel side effects now apparently include ONJ (osteonecrosis) or dead jawbone. The warning labels have not been as specific as they could be to warn doctors and patients about the dangers of Actonel jaw bone loss. This is very important information to provide to the dental community and to oral surgeries.
Proctor and Gamble, the company responsible for Actonel side effects injury, is facing class action lawsuits over this drug. Contact our Actonel lawyer team for a free consultation about your possible Actonel class action lawsuit.
Actonel increases the amount of bone available by slowing down the replacement of old bone. But this has its own dangers, since the body is being prevented from replacing bone that may contain micro-fractures and that may not have healthy bone cells living in the bone.
While Actonel has been shown to slow or stop bone loss and to increase bone mineral density, it may be a choice of quantity over quality. While clinical trials showed Actonel side effects to be minimal or moderate, it is possible to have severe back, muscle, bone or joint pain, stomach pain or upset, or constipation. Contact your doctor if symptoms are severe.
