New York, NY (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims of harm resulting from use of the drug Fosamax, has commissioned and published an infographic to educate the public about the history and dangers of the medication.
The infographic—viewable at http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fosamax-information/ —provides very easy-to-read facts about what Fosamax is prescribed for, the most common adverse side effects of the medication, other serious side effects, the conclusions of two major studies of the drug, and a timeline of significant events in the product’s history.
Despite being the most popular osteoporosis treatment medication on the market, Fosamax has been linked to several serious side effects. In 2004, researchers found a causal connection between Fosamax and osteonecrosis of the jaw, a condition where the jawbone dies due to a lack of blood supply, as reported in the Journal of Rheumatology, among other places. More recently, people have suffered low-impact femur fractures after falling from standing height or less, as reported in Journal of Orthopedic Trauma and elsewhere. Evidence is building that taking Fosamax or similar medications for the treatment of osteoporosis causes a dramatic increase in risk of this particular kind of rare fracture to the thigh bone.
The Rottenstein Law Group urges anyone whose friend or relative has been prescribed Fosamax or another osteoporosis drug to reach out to that person and recommend that he or she consult a physician immediately and then speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer. The Rottenstein Law Group maintains a Fosamax Femur Fracture Lawsuit Information Center at http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com. The site has features that allow for easy sharing, including links for automatic posting on Facebook and Twitter, specifically to enable visitors to spread the word about the dangers of Fosamax.
