Aredia, which is generically known as Pamidronic acid--a bisphosphonate--is a drug meant to prevent bone loss and treat osteoporosis; it is marketed by Novartis. Aredia is also used occasionally to strengthen bone after it was weakened by Paget’s disease, to prevent bone loss from steroid use, and to mitigate the effects of certain bone-affecting cancers such as multiple myeloma. The problem with Aredia is, however, that it has the potential to cause very nasty side effects such as Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ), which is sometimes called dead jaw.

Like the side effects of other bisphosphonates, Aredia adverse effects are very serious, and they include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Nausea
  • Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
  • Flu-like Symptoms
  • Low Calcium Levels
  • Femur Fractures
  • Hip Fractures
  • Exposed Bone
  • Dead Jaw
  • Teeth loosening
  • Poor Gum Recovery
  • Heaviness of the Jaw
  • Osteomyelitis

Osteonecrosis of the Jaw is known as “Dead Jaw” because it causes bone decay in the jaw area. Similar drugs like Fosamax have been reported to cause boney decay in the jaw. There have been over 2,000 cases of jaw bone decay reported since 2001. For many patients, the pain is so debilitating that they have resorted to the use of wheelchairs or have become totally bedridden.

Aredia is more likely to affect women because women develop osteoporosis at an earlier age than do men.

If you or your loved one has been injured as a result of taking Aredia, you may be entitled to significant Aredia compensation. In order to collect said compensation, it is wise to contact a skilled dangerous drug lawyer to help you. Call us today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.
