Bonefos, which is generically known as Clodronic acid or clodronate disodium, is an experimental medicine used as a bone resorption inhibitor and antihypercalcemic agent. Bonefos is a bisphosphonate (alternatively known as a diphosphonate). Other bisphosophonates include Actonel, Aredia, Boniva, Fosamax, Didronel, Relcast, Skelid, and Zometa. Generally, these drugs are used to treat osteoporosis, ostetis deformans, bone metastasis, multiple myeloma, primary hyperparathyroidism, osteogenesis imperfecta, and other conditions that make bones more fragile.

Unfortunately, Bonefos, while generally effective at treating bone fragility, has some very serious side effects. One of the most Bonefos adverse effects is osteonecrosis of the jaw, which is a condition that caused localized death of bone tissue in the jaws. The name literally mean dead jaw.  Bonefos is an orally administered bisphosophonate, so the risk of developing osteonecrosis  of the jaw is slightly lower than would be the risk for an intravenously administered bisphosophonate.

Another serious side effect is the possibility of bone fractures. Although Bonefos is supposed to make bones stronger, there have been many reports of bisphosophonates causing unusual fractures of thigh bones.

Bonefos side effects include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Kidney Failure
  • Femur Fractures
  • Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
  • Kidney Damage
  • Breathing Difficulties
  • Allergic Skin Reactions
  • Low Level of Calcium in the Blood

The side effects of Bonefos are serious. Patients ought to take caution while taking this drug. It is also crucial to give the doctor as much information as possible about all previous conditions, as certain per-existing conditions will make serious adverse reactions more likely.

If you of a loved one has been injured as a result of taking Bonefos, you might be entitled to compensation. A Bonefos law firm can engage in dangerous drug litigation to ensure that you receive compensation for damages.
