    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 started taking this because I've had gastric bypass surgery and can't absorb oral meds well. I was receiving another drug 4 times a year, but it was too hard to get off work. I heard about this being once a year, and tried it. I had great results. At the end of the second year, I was able to say I only had osteopenia! I took it for 3 years then I was so much better, they took me off ... Show Full Comment

    I was never told to prepare for this infusion, just got a phone call with an appt. from a major medical system in NC. I was sick for 2 weeks, fever of 102.8, sore throat, chills, no appetite, headache, breakouts on my body, conjunctivitis, swollen glands, femur and shoulder pain. I had to go to the doctor's for a steroid shot to lessen symptoms, then developed a secondary bacterial infection. ... Show Full Comment
