    I had a great deal of pain in my knees for approximately 2 weeks after I had my IV. After that, my knees started feeling better. In a few months, I could walk up our steps like I could when I was in my fifties (I am 74 years old). It's been 15 months since I had my IV and my left knee is becoming painful and going out 0n me. I am scheduled for another IV next week and I hope to get better. ... Show Full Comment

    I had the infusion on 12/18/09. The infusion process itself was easy. However, I started running a low grade temp on 1/2 and it has yet to go away 15 days later. I also have a persistent cough and wake up every night with severe night sweats. I am post-menopausal and this is worse than anything I experienced during that process. The muscle pains started recently and Aleve hasn't touched i ... Show Full Comment

    I'm adding to my comment below. I'm on day 3-post Reclast infusion. On the first night after infusion, I didn't take my Tylenol on time and had break-through flu-like symptoms with chills/finger tip numbness. I took my Tylenol right away and in about 1/2 hour, the symptoms went away. I have noticed it is better to take the Tylenol every four hours, so that it is in your system. Si ... Show Full Comment

    Yesterday, I had my first Reclast Infusion. I almost cancelled after reading this website because of all the side effects. I had a good experience. I know I'm only 1-day post infusion, but have had no side effects. I drank a lot of water before going. The nurse gave me Tylenol during the infusion which lasted 30-minutes. She told me to take Tylenol every six hours for several days. I we ... Show Full Comment

    Deep appreciation to each of you who have posted regarding your adverse reactions to Reclast and also to those who have had success. My appointement to receive my first Reclast infusion is January 18th; however, due to the lack of information received from my doctor (with the exception of 'don't worry about it'), my various health problems, I have decided to cancel the appointment.
