Fosamax, Aredia & Zometa Side Effects

Print this page

Fosamax has several potentially severe side effects. Some of the more common Fosamax side effects include upset stomach, nausea, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, excessive flatulence, or severe constipation.  There are also reports of femur fractures and other leg bone problems. Severe esophageal trauma and ulceration that can require extensive hospitalization to repair. Fosamax side effects can also include non-specific muscle, bone and joint pain.

Aredia side effects

Although most people tolerate it fairly well, Aredia side effects can include severe allergic reactions such as difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue, face, or throat; and the development of hives. Other people experience kidney problems, seizures, and diminished levels of calcium, magnesium, or phosphorus.  Other minor Aredia side effects include low fever, headache, fatigue, bone pain, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, and constipation.  Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is also a rare but serious side effect of Aredia use, causing the breakdown or complete loss of the jawbone in some cases.

Zometa side effects

Zometa is very similar to Aredia. In fact, they are both manufactured by the same company, Novartis International AG, and are designed to treat the same conditions, but Zometa is 100 times more powerful than Aredia. Like Aredia, Zometa is administered intravenously to people suffering from hypercalcaemia of malignancy (HCM), multiple myeloma, and some forms of cancer that have spread into the bone. Also like Aredia, Zometa side effects include flu-like symptoms, gastrointestinal distress, anemia, renal problems, constipation, and allergic reactions and hives.

No one should have to endure potentially catastrophic consequences from a trusted medication, particularly when there is no prior warning or when that warning is provided too late. If you have been injured by the side effects of these popular bisphosphonate drugs, you may be entitled to take legal action against the powerful drug makers who failed to protect your safety.

Victims of Fosamax side effects, Aredia side effects, and Zometa side effects have rights under the law, and may be entitled to financial compensation for their profound pain and suffering. Don't allow pharmaceutical companies to get away with jeopardizing your health - let a dedicated and experienced defective drug attorney help get you the restitution you deserve.
