Reclast (zoledronic acid) is manufactured by Novartis A.G., a company that aggressively promotes the popular and highly profitable drug as an effective way to prevent and/or treat osteoporoses in both men and women within varying age groups. Reclast is also prescribed to treat some forms of cancer, as well as hypocalcemia (low calcium levels in the blood). While Reclast is one of a class of drugs known as bisphosphonates, it is unique in its once-yearly intravenous infusion delivery, and some patients can go up to two years between dosages. Many people prefer the convenience of Reclast compared to other bisphosphonates that require once-weekly or monthly dosing.
Unfortunately, numerous clinical trials and other scientific studies have linked Reclast to serious side effect injuries and death. There exists strong evidence that Reclast is associated with an elevated incidence of: kidney disease and failure; atypical hip and femur fractures; osteomyelitis (bone infection); loosening of the teeth and numerous other dental problems, as well as a truly horrific disorder known as osteonecrosis of the jaw or Dead Jaw disease (ONJ). ONJ causes the actual death of the jaw bone followed by its slow and painful decomposition, a tragic and severely painful disorder that is both debilitating and disfiguring. As a result of Reclast’s serious to fatal side effects, combined with its manufacturer’s willful failure to sufficiently warn doctors and their patients about the potential consequences of Reclast use, numerous and nationwide lawsuits have been lodged against Novartis A.G.
