within 9 hours of the infusion I was in the emergency room all day, intravenously fed fluids and pain medicine. they wanted to induct me into the hospital because after 9 hours in the emergency room i still had a core body temperature of 102.4 F.

3 years later and still have bouts of extreme bone and joint pain following the reclast.

I had my first dose 4 days ago; since then I have had swelling and pain in my lower left jaw. I was disappointed in my physician for saying it was unrelated to the infusion since I was perfectly healthy the day they gave it to me as well as having 3 nurses and a PA check me over before the infusion. I am hesitant to do a second infusion in a year.

Steroids are leaching my bones to the point of severe osteoporosis. Thank you, Doctor ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was diagnosed with Osteopenia 13 years ago. I have taken two doses and am about to take a third. My bone scans (3 now in all) show significant improvement and have moved me from Osteopenia to NORMAL. The first treatment was horrible but becuase I did not hydrate myself. The second was a breeze.. no side effects at all and I was well hydrated
