Share Article

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We are trying to identify every woman in the United States, who has been using, any type of osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some unexplained reason, they suffered a broken femur, thighbone, or what is called a atypical thigh fracture. The US Drug Watchdog intends to make femur breaks and osteoporosis drugs, such as Fosamax one of their top initiatives in 2012. In the instance of Fosamax, the group is talking about women, whose leg simply broke; they did not fall, they did not run into something, their femur, or upper thighbone simply broke. These type of leg breaks are also called atypical fractures, and atypical fractures have been associated with Fosamax. According to the US FDA, "The femur fracture can happen suddenly and without warning, so this could be a particularly serious Fosamax side effect." The US Drug Watchdog is urging women, or family members of women, who have used any osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis Fosamax for more than five years, and then suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone to contact them anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems, and challenges we have with respect to our drug initiative work, is the average US consumer never hears about a drug recall, or serious side effects related to a specific drug's use. In the instance of the osteoporosis drugs, or specifically the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, we are trying to identify women, who have used these types of drugs for five years, or more, and then for no apparent reason suffered a broken femur, or thigh bone, and we are trying to make certain they get to the best possible attorneys, to insure they are compensated for the horrific experience of a broken femur, or thighbone. The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any woman, who suffered a out of the blue broken femur, or thighbone fracture, while they were using any osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax. According to the FDA, "Typically these fractures occurred after using any type of osteoporosis drug, or Fosamax for five years, or more." On February 3rd 2011, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) came out with a Canadian medical study that points to a higher risk of a certain type of thighbone fracture in women who take bisphosphonates such as Fosamax for long periods. The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any woman, who was using any osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for five years, or more, and then suffered an unexplained femur break, also known as a thighbone break.

The US Drug Watchdog says,"Most importantly we want to get the word out to women, who used Fosamax, or other osteoporosis drugs, who have suffered from an unexplainable broken femur, or broken leg. At the same time, we want to make certain all Fosamax users, or other osteoporosis type drug users, who suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients--period."
