Osteonecrosis of the jaw lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took Fosamax. Fosamax is a bisphosphonate drug used to treat osteoporosis, mostly in postmenopausal women.
There have been increasing complaints about Fosamax causing osteonecrosis of the jaw, which can lead to bone death and jaw fractures. Fosamax works by inhibiting osteoclasts, cells that remove old bone. This helps to maintain bone density.
Fosamax can cause or increase the risk of this complication. In addition to preventing the removal of old bone, Fosamax has been shown to inhibit the body’s ability to repair bone. This makes bones brittle, and in those using Fosamax who have a tooth extracted or jaw infection are at an increased risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw.
