    My 83 year old mother has been recommended this drug by her doctor, we have been reviewing other patients problems and have decided against it. It was very suspicious that it has to be given in the Onconlogy dept. Her doctor told her that is where it is given because so many chemo patients have bone loss due to chemo.

    I had my first infusion 2 days ago, and so far have experienced no side effects. I have been drinking lots of water & taking tylenol 3 times per day since the day of the infusion, and will continue with this for several more days. I was given this treatment after experiencing extreme joint pain from 2 other osteoporosis drugs. So far, no joint pain which is what I was most worried about.

I received my first infusion yesterday, did my homework, took calcium and vitamin D, and drank lots of water but am experiencing severe fatigue as well as bone and muscle pain. Too early to give long-range effects, but if you are getting ready to receive your first infusion, read the warni ... Show Full Comment
