The FDA found that in some cases two types of drugs that were supposed to be preventing serious medical problems were, in fact, causing them.
Bisphosphonates like Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva, will now have to carry labels saying they can lead to rare fractures of the thigh bone, a discovery that came after another finding that they can cause a rare degeneration of the jawbone called osteonecrosis.
The other is Avandia, a blockbuster drug which was prescribed for diabetics. Diabetics are at high risk because of the disease process, for heart attacks and heart failure. Now the F.D.A. and drug regulators in Europe are restricting Avandia’s use because it appears to increase heart risks, according to research studies. Talk about a double whammy.
In both cases, the respective drug companies continue to deny any liability to the disease processes associated with the usage of their drugs.
