Fosamax®, also known as alendronate sodium, is a prescription medicine produced by Merck & Co. to help patients suffering from bone loss. The drug is taken by nearly 10 million men and women. While the drug has shown great promise in treating osteoporosis, alendronate is a bisphophonate and recent studies have shown that bisphonphonates can be dangerous to the lining of the throat and stomach as well as possibly causing Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ), a destructive, necrotic bone disease also known as “bone death.” Once necrosis begins, it is irreversible. Osteonecrosis of the jaw can be very painful and may lead to other complications such as infection, breakdown of the jawbone, ulcers in the mouth and non-healing wounds.
In 2004, the FDA asked Merck to add a warning to the Fosamax® label but the company did not do so for almost a full year. Instead, they cited their own clinical trials which they claimed showed no evidence that the use of Fosamax® was related to ONJ. In January 2008, the bad news continued for Fosamax® patients, when the FDA released a report that linked the drug to severe and sometimes debilitating, bone, muscle and joint pain.
