    My first treatment was horrible and every single bone was in pain and felt like they were broken and had fever and i was shaking so bad can't even get up that night.

    I don't feel I was given adequate information on this drug/treatment prior to the IV. Had many side effects for 2 days: heartburn! , loss of appetite, chills, lethargy. I won't be doing this treatment again. and I still have to take Calcium & Vitamin D.

    Horrible reaction to the infusion this year. Took it last year no problems. It has been 2 months and I'm still suffering jaw pain, headaches, back pain and fatigue. All I get is to take a pain reliever. I don't think I'll be doing this again.

    I had my Reclast infusion 4 days ago. As an RN, I read all the info ahead of time...my Dr. had told me virtually nothing. I had my kidney function test done, and began drinking A LOT OF WATER the day before until now. Near the end of my infusion my palms and fingers started itching a lot...I took a Benedrl which helped. As soon as I got home, and for the next 3 days, I felt ill and tired like I ha ... Show Full Comment
