Rottenstein Law Group Publishes Fosamax Infographic to Raise Public Awareness of the Drug’s History, Dangers
(New York, NY, September 26, 2011) The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims of harm stemming from use of the drug Fosamax, has commissioned and published an infographic to raise public awareness of the history and dangers of the medication.
The infographic provides easy-to-read facts about Fosamax; what it is prescribed for, its most common adverse side effects, other serious side effects, and the conclusions of two major studies of the drug. There is also a timeline of significant events in the drug’s history.
Fosamax is one of the most popular on the market used to treat osteoporosis. It has, however, been linked to some very serious side effects. In 2004, researchers found a casual connection between Fosamax and osteonecrosis of the jaw, a condition that causes the jawbone to die due to lack of adequate blood flow. More recently, individuals taking Fosamax have suffered low-impact femur fractures after experiencing a fall from a standing height or less. Evidence is mounting that taking Fosamax and similar osteoporosis medications causes a dramatic increase in the risk of this particular kind of rare thigh bone fracture.
The Rottenstein Law Group advises anyone with a friend or family member who has been prescribed Fosamax or another osteoporosis drug to recommend to that person that he or she consult a physician immediately, then speak to a qualified Fosamax lawyer. The Rottenstein Law Group lawyers have a total of more than 25 years of experience fighting for the rights of clients who have suffered harm due to the negligence of powerful corporations. Affected individuals are advised to keep apprised of the latest news concerning the Fosamax femur fracture lawsuits by checking the Fosamax Femur Fracture Lawsuit Information Center for updated information. The site is equipped with easy-to-use social media features which will enable users to spread the word about the dangers of Fosamax.
