Today is the the fifteenth day since I had the infusion and I actually was able to walk two miles. The first night after having Reclast my temp went up up to over 103 degrees. They told me to call the doc if it went higher than 100.5. When I called the next morning to tell them, they weren't the least concerned. I felt like I'd been thrown off a 15 story building. Gradually I got bett ... Show Full Comment

Ladies (and gentlemen, if any), YOU MUST DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST. Since I have other health problems, and have learned to read about side effects and things I must do first, I read about Reclast.

I had the reclast iv done in the morning. I woke up at 3am, stomach upset, my head was hurting. Then when I got up I had a rash on top of my arms. It all went away. Also, nobody told me to drink liquids prior to the treatment. So I look up stuff on webmd b/f getting treatments done. I would do it again because I take alot of pills and I am sick of taking pills.
