I had NO side effects at all from the infusion! There is so much negative info being posted on this drug from people who are reporting bad experiences, I feel those of us who have taken it with no problems need to speak up. Several of my friends have received it--and other than one having a mild headache the following day--none of us have had any problems with it.

Today is the the fifteenth day since I had the infusion and I actually was able to walk two miles. The first night after having Reclast my temp went up up to over 103 degrees. They told me to call the doc if it went higher than 100.5. When I called the next morning to tell them, they weren't the least concerned. I felt like I'd been thrown off a 15 story building.

Comment:
Ladies (and gentlemen, if any), YOU MUST DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST. Since I have other health problems, and have learned to read about side effects and things I must do first, I read about Reclast. My rheumatologist ordered this treatment, after I told him about side effects of Fosamax and pain after falling. He said that he like Reclast better, so he got the treatment approved. Like I said, I di ... Show Full Comment
