I have been taking fosamax for a couple of years with the most devastating results. My Teeth have been breaking off on a regular basis the dental hospital are very nervous about removing my Teeth as they fear my jaw could break as a result of osteonecrosis. Also, I have just had a barium swallow for my enlarged glans in my throat where for the past 6 weeks I have lost my ability to speak after awakening at 8am exactly 12hrs later. The mental anguish is extreme and the dental surgery costs will be astronomical if my jaw can stand up to teeth removal without breaking. The manufacturers of this drug should step up and accept the compensation pay out to the sufferers of this debilitating drug called fosamax.

That is a known side effect of this medication, according to NIH reports. It may also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches.

Usually, before having extractions, you have to stop this medication for awhile.

Have they done any checks for osteonecrosis?

Re: Verwon (# 1)

Yes, in answer to your question. At present, a very good chance of osteonecrosis. Would you take this abomination of a drug that has no antidote? I think not. As for Merck, they haven't got the guts to even reply. They might as well sell poison. The FDA gave the "All-clear" to this drug without checking to see if there were any drastic side effects like all your teeth breaking off and falling out. A drug that has provided no relief for an arthritic condition at all. My wife's dental surgery will now be $20,000 dollars. Will Merck pay her bills? Doubt that, but they should be accountable and the FDA should withdraw this drug and impose a fine at least. Nearly all drugs have an antidote but Fosamax does not. How did this pass the FDA? {edited for privacy}
