US Drug Watchdog Now Urges Loved Ones to Ask Their Women Family Members Who Have Suffered a Unexplained Femur Break if They Were Using the Osteoporosis Drug Fosamax

December 28, 2011

The US Drug Watchdog says, “In the instance of Fosamax, we are talking about women, whose leg simply broke. They did not fall, they did not run into something, their femur bone simply broke. We need to identify every woman in the United States, who had been using Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some unexplained reason they suffered a broken femur, or what is called an atypical thigh fracture.” The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members, or loved ones of women, who have suffered an out of the blue femur break, or broken thigh bone, to ask the woman if she was using osteoporosis drug called Fosamax at the time of the break. According to the FDA on July 11th, 2011, “Typically these femur fractures among women occurred after using Fosamax for five years, or more.” Women, who have used the osteoporosis drug Fosamax for more than five years, and then suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone are encouraged to contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com

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 femur, or thighbone fractures in women, who take bisphosphonates such as Fosamax for long periods of time. The US Drug Watchdog is saying, “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 drug called Fosamax, we are trying to identify women, who have used this drug for five years, or more, and then for no apparent reason suffered a broken femur, or thigh bone, and we think we need loved ones, and or family members to help us identify these possible victims. These type of leg breaks are also called atypical fractures. These fracture can happen suddenly and without warning, so based on the JAMA study, this could be a particularly serious side effect of the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax.” The US Drug Watchdog wants to hear from any woman, who was using the osteoporosis drug Fosamax for five years, or more, and then suffered an unexplained femur break, also known as a thighbone break.

The US Drug Watchdog is the premier private pharmaceutical watchdog, and advocacy group in the United States. The group says,”Most importantly we want to get the word out about Fosamax, and to long term users, who have suffered from an unexplainable broken femur, or broken leg. At the same time, we want to make certain all Fosamax users, who suffered an unexplained broken femur, or thigh bone get to the actual trial law firms or attorneys, that have the best record in achieving superior results for their clients—period.” For more information please contact the US Drug Watchdog anytime at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
