Fosamax and "dead jaw" syndrome
A team of class action and personal injury lawyers has launched an investigation into the popular osteoporosis drug Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium), a bisphosphonate which has recently been linked to the development of osteonecrosis of the jaw, or ONJ, a rare and serious condition that causes breakdown and death of the jaw bone (known as "dead jaw" syndrome).
Symptoms of osteonecrosis include burning, tingling or localized pain or swelling in the jaw, infection (possibly with pus), and irregular sores with exposed bone.
If you or your loved ones have ever taken Fosamax, and have been injured as a result of Fosamax side effects such as osteonecrosis of the jaw , you may be entitled to money.**
**If you have used Fosamax and suffer from any of the side effects, we also urge you to promptly consult your doctor for an evaluation.
