Comment:
My first Reclast infusion was one year ago. For two days after the infusion, I had intense pain all over my body. Once past the first couple days, I felt better than I have felt in a long time. A recent Dexascan showed that my hips went from -3.5 to -2.9 and my spine went from -2.9 to -2.5. With those results I decided I could endure two days of pain once a year. Today, I had my second a ... Show Full Comment

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. My rheumatologist ordered this treatment, after I told him about side effects of Fosamax and pain after falling. He said that he like Reclast better, so he got the treatment approved. Like I said, I di ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I cannot take oral meds for osteoporosis due to digestive upset so tried this last year. I was advised well prior to the tx and given water. The infusion felt cold and I felt sort of odd the rest of the day. For 2 days after I had flu like symptoms but they did not keep me out of work. I took OTC meds and they helped. Some bone and joint discomfort over a couple of months then no problems. I am du ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
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.
