Health Day reported that some popular osteoporosis medications could cause drug injuries such as a rare, but serious, cardiac side effect.
A recent study shows that biophosphonates could increase the risk for drug injuries such as atrial fibulation, a heart condition that causes the heart to beat erratically, which could lead to blood clots that may lead to heart attacks or strokes.
Though the risk for drug injuries is associated with biophosphonates, it is a small risk.
Texas patients who take osteoporosis medications should be aware of the Texas drug injuries that can occur as side effects from the medication.
