Fosamax Side Effects & Complications
Since it’s introduction to the market in the 1990s, Fosamax has been a popular drug for those suffering from bone deficiency issues, such as osteoporosis.
Unfortunately, many patients have experienced negative side effects when using this medication. Minor complications include nausea, constipation, cramping, skin rashes and eye problems.
More serious complication issues however, such as severe bone fracture, have also been associated with Fosamax.
Fosamax and Bone Fractures
Fosamax patients have experienced serious bone fractures in different areas. Prominent areas that are prone to fracture include the femur bone (thigh bone) and the jaw. These fractures can vary in severity, however most come in the form of stress fractures. These are low energy fractures that often happen when they are least expected, and can be particularly frustrating as many patients report it occurring as they are preforming routine activities such as walking or getting out of bed.
Fosamax and Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ)
Osteonecrosis (ONJ), also referred to as Dead Jaw Syndrome, is another serious side-effect of Fosamax. This can occur when blood flow to the jaw is cut off, causing the bone to die. ONJ usually occurs following minor trauma around the jaw, such as a visit to the dentist. Taking Fosamax increases the risk of this complication occurring.
