Written by Andrew Traub

Fosamax (generic name is Alendronate) is a drug used primarily to treat osteoporosis in post menopausal women.  The FDA issued an analysis of Fosamax linking it to a serious bone disease known as osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) or “dead jaw.”

Symptoms of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) include:

  • Loosening of the teeth
  • Severe infections
  • Ulcers and sores
  • Exposed bone
  • Tooth extractions
  • Swelling
  • Jaw pain

If you or a loved one has taken Foxamax and have any of the above symptoms, call The Traub Law Office at (512) 343-2572
