    I wouldn't advise anyone to take this drug. My life has been affected by the severe muscle cramps and joint pain in my legs, especially my right leg. I am in my 9th month and still suffering. I had the injection in April 2015 and in May I was on a walker and raised toilet seat in severe pain.

    Just had my third infusion yesterday. The only side effects I've had are mild bone and muscle aches, which are easily controlled with Tylenol. I had a bone density scan several weeks prior to this infusion, which showed that my osteoporosis has improved slightly. I plan to take it again next year.

    I had trouble taking oral medication of this type. So, my insurance just paid for Reclast, once a year. The nurse told me before hand to drink plenty of water. Also, I took Tylenol twice a day, every 12 hours. I was expecting the worse to happen in the way of side effects, but I went on with my life as normal. No issues at all. We also made sure my Vitamin D and Calcium were in high standing. I th ... Show Full Comment
