    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

    Effectiveness required an answer. In truth, I had my first infusion in May of this year. Won't take Dexter to determine effectiveness until 2017. So, effectiveness remains to be seen. The administration of the drug is easy, and minimal side effects. My teeth hurt for a few days but returned to normal. I have never seen that mentioned as a side effect, but I had it. I am writing this bec ... Show Full Comment

    I had a horrible reaction to Reclast. I had it at noon on Friday. At 3 a.m. Saturday I woke up with severe chills, aching all over. The chills lasted until I took at hot bath at 11 a.m. despite taking Advil. I had a fever of 101.8 for three days. I had pain in all my joints. It hurt to walk. It took 6 mo for hip pain (new) to go away. I will not use the drug again. It is poison.

    I was prescribed Reclast by a doctor in the Mineral Metabolism Department of a large medical school. I have had no side effects from the medicine. Several of my other doctors have mentioned how well tolerated Reclast is. It is easier to take, is more effective and has fewer side effects than oral medications for osteoporosis.
