    I had my first Reclast infusion last year. I was premedicated with Tylenol, Benadryl and IV steriods (methyprednisolone) prior to the infusion due to a history of multiple drug allergies. The premeds probably saved me from even nastier side effects. About six hours after the infusion ended, I had the WORST pain in my life in ALL my joints, muscles, bones, etc. I spent two days in total agony. ... Show Full Comment

She had to endure pain, loss of mobility and a normal active life. It has been almost a yea ... Show Full Comment

    I had a reclast infusion a week ago. Six hours after receiving the infusion I went to the ER with debilitating chest pains and it hurt to breathe. Was in the hospital 2 1/2 days and experience a lot of pain, fever, and headache. It is a week later and my entire body feels inflamed. No one told me about these side effects and now I'm wondering how long I will be going through this and if it ... Show Full Comment

    I recently received this drug because I was unable to tolerate alendronate (Fosomax). I prepped by drinking lots of water before, during, and after the infusion which took about 30 minutes. I was also given 650 mg of acetaminophen and was told to take the same every 4 hours. Shortly after the infusion I was very, very thirsty and my eyes were dry. About 6 hrs. later I began experiencing a seve ... Show Full Comment
