Fosamax Linked to Osteonecrosis of the Jaw

Fosamax is a prescription drug which treats osteoporosis. While the drug was prescribed to increase bone density, recent studies have shown that Fosamax may have the opposite effect leading to bone destruction. This condition known as Osteonecrosis of the Jaw, or ONJ, is irreversible and causes the jawbone to die. The jawbone is then unable to regenerate.

Some symptoms of ONJ may include Loose Teeth, Jaw Pain, Ulcers, and Exposed Bone.

Fosamax has also been associated with osteonecrosis of the shoulder, osteonecrosis of the knee, osteonecrosis of the hip and a possible risk of low-impact femur fractures
