Fosamax, a popular drug prescribed by doctors and taken to increase bone loss in women and men may not be all it’s cracked up to be (pun intended).
Prolonged use of Fosamax may overly suppress bone metabolism, affecting the ability of the bone to repair micro-damage to the femur.
Advertisements and our healthcare providers may have us believing that osteoporosis builds bones but there are exceptions and not without risks.
Once ingested, Fosamax remains in the bones indefinitely and can upset the delicate balance between the cells that put calcium in bone and the cells that take calcium away. Some long-term users of the osteoporosis drug Fosamax may find out the hard way that Fosamax makes bones brittle instead of strengthening the bones.
Fosamax takers who suffer this rare side effect may suffer broken legs after minor falls. Spiral femur fractures occur along the length of the femur or the long thigh bone. Surprisingly, people may suffer fractures when walking across a room or standing up from a chair.
Does Fosamax give post-menopausal women and men a false sense of security regarding their bone health? Has your mother, wife, or sister suffered debilitating femur fractures after long-term use of Fosamax? Has a serious thigh bone fracture caused by an unsafe osteoporosis drug affected the well-being of your loved one and put financial strain and stress on your family?
