Fda and bisphosphonate warning

Hello everybody,

It was announced on today's news that the FDA has apparently agreed with clinical studies finding that Bisphosphonates can cause non-traumatic femur fractures. FINALLY they caught on. ' bout time They specifically mentioned Fosamax and Boniva but one can assume it's for ALL the Bisphosphonates. Big pharma MUST now comply with the finding and add this info to their list of side effects on the patient printouts.
