Comment:
I had my first infusion at the end of January. I was not as hydrated as I needed to be, so it took awhile to get the IV needle in. After that the infusion was very easy; I just had to sit in a comfortable chair. Unfortunately I did have about 36 hours of uncomfortable side effects - fever, nausea (no vomiting), fatigue, and the worst body pain I have ever experienced. It was very hard to eat and a ...

Comment:
After my first reclast infusion I had the worse flu like symptoms ever. My bones hurt horribly and was unable to get out of bed for 3 days. Only up to bathroom with help. Chronic fatigue was so bad, I rarely woke up. I've been putting off my next infusion for 8 months now. I did everything before and during the infusion that was recommended. When I told my Dr about the effect the drug had on m ... Show Full Comment

I am 78 years old and received this infusion 9 months ago. I was well hydrated and continued to be well hydrated for several days after the infusion. I also asked the nurse to slow down the infusion and she did - it took 30 minutes to finish. I had absolutely no side effects. I will have another infusion in June. This is a great drug.

Comment:
My father had the Reclast infusion at the end of June 2013. Within a week he could barely walk and required a wheel chair to get into a Dr. appt. A month later the severe pain continued, so his Dr. moved him from the 10mg Predisone that he was taking for rhuematoid arthritis to 60mg to alleviate the pain caused by Reclast. Then a host of other issues also began from severe chills, blood pressur ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My father took his one and only infusion of Reclast in 2010, he was dead 54 days later FROM Reclast! He was in good health before Reclast, had a complete blood profile done, and his Dr. bullied him into taking this poison. That's appears to be the case many times. NO ONE , not one person should ever take this drug! There is no way to reverse this poison once it is in your body, and there is ... Show Full Comment
