I have had two infusions with no side effects. Just had my bone density scan and have gone from osteoporosis to osteopenia! Thrilled! Can't wait for my third tx in April!

Very positive results. Slight aches for several weeks after but nothing holding me back from normal activities. Bone density scan greatly improved. One more infusion to go, then I'm done.

Comment:
I have taken Reclast for 4 years now. Prior to taking it, my bone density results were very bad..both in my hip and lower back. I was considered high risk for bone fracture. My latest bone density test (1 month ago) revealed I no longer have osteoporosis in my hip and my back is showing bone growth, not loss. I should also note that I take 1195 mg of calcium per day and 1750 IU per day of vitamin ... Show Full Comment
