After taking my 3rd infusion, I developed osteonecrosis of the Jaw due to reclast infusions. I have had to spend over 30,000 dollars to have my mouth restored only to find out that it has worsened, DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG and report your symptoms to the FDA PLEASE if we do not get this warning out they will continue to manufacture it.

Had the IV injection 3 days ago and will not do again. Will have to find something else to use. Body aches not so bad, but throwing up and diarrhea has been awful. Not be able to eat or drink anything. Itching on wrist and hands have be horrible. Didn't have any idea of these symptoms. No I would not recommend this especially after reading these other reviews.
