I had the treatment on Dec 31, 2009 and felt fine afterwards. The next morning I woke up to the worst jaw and ear pain I have ever felt.

It has been one week since the treatment and this feeling is still happening. I al ... Show Full Comment

This coming May I will be taking my 3rd Reclast infusion. After the first infusion I went out to lunch with my husband and I felt fine.

After reading all of the horrible side effects these folks have experienced, I have decided to not request this drug from my physician. Based on the TV commercials, it looks like a great alternative to Boniva &/or Fosimax, but I will not risk it and just put up with going without my morning coffee for an hour after taking my Fosimax. Letting sleeping dogs lie, so to speak. Thanks, to all of y ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Had a Reclast infusion in December after my osteopenia had not improved on another drug. Experienced no problems at all. Drank some extra water, but needed no Tylenol. Felt a bit fatigued for two days, but I was busy packing for a major trip and don't know if the fatigue was a result of the infusion or the packing. If it proves effective, I will happily return for another infusion next year.
