    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. That evening I did have some flu like symptoms but nothing major. I was fine in the morning. Before my second infusion I had a bone density test...I had no further bone loss. After the infusion I felt fine. I am hoping that this year will be the same. I have had ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    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

    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.

    Unlike most people writing a review of Reclast . . . I did not have any problems. In fact, I went for a run with my 13-year-old daughter a few hours after the treatment and a movie in the evening -- plus slept normally. I had difficulty taking Actonel [monthly calcium medication] so I am optimistic about this treatment!! Bottom line: I felt zero discomfort.
