Bone Death in Women taking osteoporosis Drugs

Comments Off

It was recently reporter that there is a link between women taking certain bone strengthening drugs known as bisphosphonates, including ( Fosamax, Actonel, Boniva, Skelid, Didronel, Zometa, Aredia, and Bonefos) and death of bone tissue.

The study was printed in the Harvard Women’s Health Watch (September 2006).

The above drugs are widely prescribed for osteoporosis and also to treat bone pain incancer patients. In the short run, biophosphonates increase bone density, but in the long run they seem to impair new bone formation.
