Aredia, the market name for Pamidronic acid or Pamidronate disodium, is a prescription drug manufactured and sold by Novartis. Aredia has been approved for treatment to minimize bone loss, and in the treatment of osteoporosis. It can also be used to reduce the risk of bone loss in people who are taking steroids.
Aredia, a bisphosphonate, has been tied to a range of health concerns, from discomfort and pain in the bones to dangerously low calcium levels, from dizziness or lightheadedness to nausea and vomiting. Like other bisphosphonates, it has also been linked to osteonecrosis of the jaw, a condition where the cells in the bone structure in the jaw deteriorate and die.
