Women, who used the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax are not commodities, and the US Drug Watchdog will make certain every Fosamax victim, who has had a broken femur, has specific contact information for the best possible national caliber trial law firms
(PRWEB) January 31, 2012
The US Drug Watchdog has previously noted they intend to make femur breaks and the osteoporosis drug Fosamax one of their top initiatives in 2012. In addition the group will focus on trying to identify the best possible attorneys, or trial law firms to advance a Fosaamax victims claim. The group does not think women, who used the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax are commodities, and they are determined to make certain every Fosamax victim, who has had to endure a broken femur, has specific contact information for the best possible national caliber trial law firms, or attorneys, that will remain their attorney, or law firm from start to finish, and or the best law firms, that have the best record for achieving superior results for their clients in defective pharmaceutical damages lawsuits.
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. For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.com.
The US Drug Watchdog says, "One of the biggest problems 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. In many instance to repair the femur break, the woman had to have a metal rod surgically inserted to reinforce the femur. Most women victims tell us the pain was beyond comprehension, and now many women fear; will it happen again?" The type of leg breaks are also called atypical fractures associated with Fosamax. The fracture can happen suddenly and without warning, so this could be a particularly serious Fosamax side effect according to the US FDA. 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.
