 4  Osteoporosis/Osteopenia None this time. First infusion I felt flu like symptoms for 21 days, Second and Third infusion have not had any side effects. It has helped to build bone which is a blessing. I watched my mother bedridden for one year due to severe osteoporosis, so having this genetic issue is scary. I was unable to take other types of medications because of chronic ulcers and asthma so this works well. F 62 3 years

 5  Osteporosis Experienced the flu-like symptoms the first time I received the infusion; it just felt like my bones were starving for the meds. Each year after my first time, I experienced less side effects and now I have no side effects. Major improvements! If you understand what osteoporosis is and how reclast helps this disease, the side effects are minimal compared to the benefits. I say this on my behalf and understand this drug may not be good for everyone. Some may have other ailments that are enhanced by any treatment. I have been told that cancer has been associated with the pills, but not so with the reclast. This has been a perfect solution for me. F 56 6 years

 1  osteoporosis I Received Reclast Sept. 4, 2014. I Felt Okay At First, But About 6 Hours Later I Became Fatigued And Had Body Aching. It Became Worse Through The Night And Nothing Took This Painful Deep Bone Pain Away. I Did Not Want To Be Touched. My Skin Hurt. The Day After The Infusion, I Felt Even Worse. I Also Had Developed This Pain In My Chest On The Left Side That Traveled Up The Left Side Of My Neck. Taking A Deep Breath Is Painful. I Have CallEd My Doctor About These Symptoms. I Was Shrugged Off As Being Made To Feel This Will Just Be A 24 Hr Thing. Take Tylenol And Drink Lots Of Water And I Would Be Just Fine. I Had Already Been Doing These Things. I Really Felt In The Dark About The Side Effects Of This Drug. I Am Concerned This May Not Be A "24 Hour Thing". I Should Have Never Taken This Drug And Will For Sure Never Take It Again. F 43 1 days

 1  osteoporosis I went to my rheumatologist 2 days ago for my first infusion. Within 12 hours, I awoke with the worst body aches, joint pains and chest pains to the point that I couldn't take a deep breath. I called my doctor as soon as they opened. I was advised to go to the emergency room. They immediately took me straight to the back. Originally, my blood pressure was 133/41. I explained to the ER doc that I felt like I had the flu times 5 and like a boa constrictor was wrapped around my chest. They did, numerous labs, urinalysis, chest xray and gave me IV pain meds and meds for nausea. The doc came in and said all test came back fine and said my symptoms were from the Reclast. He was about to discharge me when I told the nurse I felt as if I had a fever. She checked it, and it was 102.4. Then came the vomiting. I also could not urinate, so they put in a foley catheter. The doctor came back in and said he hated to send me home in this condition and offered to do a 24 hour observa I will never go through the he** that I went through with Reclast again! F 42 1 days

My bloodwork showed elevated liver enzymes, low sodium, low magnesium. The doctor in the ER had never treated a patient who had received the Reclast infusion before, so he researched it and stated he would have never recommended this med. i feel a little better on day five but I don't feel right.

 2  Osteoporisis After taking the 4th infusion, I experienced a lot of pain that night. I also had and still have pain in my groin area when I walk. I also noticed a lot of hair loss in the last few years. It was easy to get the infusion, but I don't think any of the bone medicine helps. Very confused as to how this medicine works when it is a known factor that you may get a femur break after taking it for a period of time. I have taken many of the different drugs for this problem since I was diagnosed in 2007 after having a cracked sacrum. F 67 4 years

 1  Osteoporosis Non stop pain, taking Viciodin every 4 hours. Got Shingles after 1 week. Severe nausea, headache, body, muscle and bone pain. New pain every day! Now rib cage pain. I am so tired can barely get out of bed. This drug is poison, and I wish there was a way to get it out of my system. My pain has not gotten any better, mainly on my back and arm on the injection side. I have not been able to leave the house, exhausted and in bed and I feel that my life is ruined! I feel bad that my Dr recommended this drug. I have Adrenal Failure already, take steroids so my immune system is very poor. Why would anyone recommend this poison to anyone! My hair is looking pretty bad! I wonder how much worse I will get because I am not getting any better after a month!! I don't see myself ever getting better. F 60

 5  Osteopenia I have had no side effect whatsoever that I can contribute to the Reclast infusion. My bone scan and density improved greatly and I've been very happy and satisfied with my experience. I had one two years in a row and I need to visit the dr and ask about being tested. I would not hesitate to have it again. As I am reading this I realize I have broken two teeth that had large childhood fillings. I need to get to the dentist but do not have dental insurance. Now that I'm reading comments, I am wondering if there is a link or it's just ironic. F 55 2 years

 1  Osteoporosis This was my physicians choice after I have not been able to take any of the pills without side affects, am allergic to sulfa so that rules some out. This entire week afterward, I have felt direly tired, flu like, and any activity seems to reactivate some of the symptoms. My joints, are doing the snap, crackle, pop routine. It all does seem to me, best described as any weak link or damaged area in your body is ravaged and attacked by this drug. MY hopes and prayers, are NO severe long-term affects down the road here. Will be speaking with my physician. When they called me for follow-up from the hospital three days later, they were unaware I had went to ER, and gave me the speech on how "uncommon" it was for this to happen, that Only Flu-Like Symptoms are still expected! "NOT" NOT true, seems Very TOXIC to me. Am not better, seem to be having continual aches/discomfort, with true cold/flu like symptoms now, NO energy at all. PAIN/some swelling is returning in areas I've had problems before. VERY dissatisfied and getting concerned. F 66 1 days

Within first week he had severe bone pain to the point where he needed wheelchair assistance to get in to a doctor appt, whereas he could previously walk downtown. Within a month he had chills/hot, muscle weakness, difficulty standing and walking which got progressively worse and difficulty even walking within the home. Then blood pressure and heart rate issues began about 1-1/2 months after the infusion. After month 2 began to go to various doctors and hospital and despite high heart rate issues, the hospital noticing the myopathy in legs, and lung showing ground glass appearance, he was discharged and then went to more doctors and urgent care before finally being admitted to the hospital on 9/27. On 10/3 he was moved to ICU because of difficulty breathing, and intubated. 10/23 Death. M 74 1 times

 1  supposedly for Osteoporosis Pulmonary Emboli. Atrial Fibrillation. 3rd stage Kidney failure My one and only infusion of Reclast has disrupted my once pain free, relatively peaceful life. The doctor pushed me to have this poison and I caved in to his insistence that I needed it. I've spent more time in the hospital than I care to think about. I later found out that I only had Osteopenia and shouldn't have had this drug in the first place. My life has been altered severely now because of this drug and the greed that brought it to market too swiftly absolutely blows my mind. Please do your homework and don't be pressured to have this drug infused into your body until you know what has been taking place with patients who have been experiencing extremely adverse reactions to it.

 1  OSTEOPOROSIS I was advised by my OB/GYN that since Actonel and Boniva were not working AND since I suffer from GERD that the RECLAST annual infusion was the PERFECT answer. My 3rd annual infusion was March 2012. I experienced slight flu like symptoms BUT the cummulative effects of this medicine have now taken its toll. I broke 2 bones in my foot in November 2012 and six months later there is ABSOLUTELY NO HEALING OR UNION. I now found out -- Reclast will make your bones more dense but it also stops new bone formation. WOW! this means that the 6 months I have been trying to heal my body is fighting itself. I cannot have surgery because my bones will not heal. I am wearing a bone stimulating machine that costs over $5,000 but the Reclast has stopped my foot from healing. AND the PAIN is intense!!! I have sharp shooting pains in both feet. I couldn't understand why me until I learned that this side effect of Reclast is only being discovered now.

 3  Osteoporosis I've had two Reclast infusions (1 per year, about 1/2 an hour each), and after the first one (even though I did drink more water, and take Advil as instructed), I was blindsided by nasty flu-like (body aches etc.) side effects almost immediately. I was told that might happen, but I still wasn't prepared for how quickly I felt awful! The flu-like symptoms lasted a few days and went away. After the 2nd infusion, I didn't have any side effects. But now that I've read other Reclast user's comments, I'm going to talk to my Dermatologist and Primary Care doctor about my thinning hair & possible connection to using Reclast. I thought it was just part of the aging process.... My bone density scores had pretty much been in free fall mode, in spite of using Boniva for 4 years (both monthly pills and quarterly infusions), so Reclast was the next option offered to me. A Dexa scan done a year after my first Reclast infusion showed that my bone density decline had stopped. I need to have another Dexa Scan in a few months (which will be a year after the 2nd Reclast infusion), so I'll know more then. I'm hoping of course that the Scan will not only show no more bone loss, but also an increase in bone density as promised. F 64 2 years

 1  Osteoporosis After taking four doses of Actonal in Feb. 2013, the side effects left me unable to do some minor house work. The following month, I had the yearly infusion of Reclast.. I still have horrible pain in legs, back ,fingers and feet. Finger feel as if a metal file was harshly used to clean under nail. It was infused slowly and I am trying to stay hydrated, but walking at times is next to impossible. My back , sometimes get hot as if I was using a heating pad. No way to get it out system, so my daily activities may never be the same. I know some people have had no problems..YET. I think of the people who do not use a computer and cannot let it be known about their experience. Please don't just accept it when medical workers tell you they have never heard of complaints other than mild flu symptoms and some brief bone pains. Direct them to this site about all drugs related to Reclast. Then perhaps when people have to go to the ER, they will stop treating us like nut cases when tests show no major abnormalities. The pain is real. Seriously real.... F 60

Unfortunately, the infuser, Andrea E, claimed herself my lover and nurse neither of which is true. I don't know how this medicine would work when infused properly.

Renal failure so bad that the funeral director told me we had to have a closed coffin. The renal failure and dehydration were so bad that he was unable to repair her once beautiful face for viewing. Doctor told her to go home and drink water and read the label. He gave her the entire box the drug came in to take home and read. I still have the box and it has no Lot number on it.

 1  osteopenia Severe pain starting about 8 hours after infusion. It started in my spine and ribs, making breathing difficult. Next day I could hardly roll over in bed and had terrible groin pain. It seems to concentrate in areas already affected by arthritis, making it worse. Also had fever of over 100 for a few days. I thought all this was passing one week after treatment but then awoke to severe jaw pain and the feeling that my jaw was unhinged and teeth didn't meet together right. of course my doctor didn't return my call. WILL NEVER HAVE THIS TREATMENT AGAIN! I feel the drug company and doctors gloss over the side effects so you feel safe taking this drug. Now it is a game of wait and see what is going to hit me next.

He started having terrible pain the next day after this infusion and it continued. He checked with Dr and was told it had nothing to do with pain. He went to Orthopedic Surgeon and learned differently. We have been told this medicine stays in bones for up to 10 years! Does anyone know of anything to remove it from bones?

 2   Within 6 hours after receving the infusion treatment, the shortness of breath, bone, mousle and joint pain started. I would not call it flu like symptoms. it was deblilitating. I couldn't even get out of bed. nausia, vomiting accompenied it. I have had many surgeries throughout the years, but this was one of the worse things i hhave ever experienced. That was the first 24 hours. I am on the second day. Back to work, feeling much better. Still have shortness of breath, and body aches. I sure hope it goes away soon. The nurse that gave the IV said to take Tylonol twice a day to prevent body aches. I needed something a lot stronger than that to deal with the pain. They usually give you all the bad side effects before hand, but they sure did not with this one. I don't think I will do it again. F 44

Slipped in puddle of blood when trying to get up (was by myself). Finally made it to bed and passed out again. Woke up with blood all over my PJ top, hallway looked like crime scene with smeared blood on tile floor, bloody palm prints on walls. I am a very active 58-year-old who has been swimming, dancing, running, cycling, Frisbee playing all my life. I still don't have my energy level back at 6 months post Reclast.

 1  osteoporosis I had a low fever and body aches the first year I took this drug. It lasted less than a week. Then in July of 2011 I had my second infusion. This time the fever and body aches were a little worse. Then less than a month later I started having abdominal pains and thought it was diverticulitis so went to ER. Nothing could be found to explain the pain. To make a long story short, I have been to ER twice since August and to my gastroenteritis, and they can't seem to find anything wrong. I go from constipation to diarrhea and throwing-up and it is very painful. I can only take Cipro and the last time they gave that to me it caused problems. I feel very tired all the time and am in pain. I am also seeing a specialist for knee pain now. I was just wondering if anyone else has had abdominal pain since having an infusion. I most definitely will not use Reclast again and I will be sure to warn other women about it. F 69 2 years

 1  osteoporosis About 12 hours after infusion, started feeling the flu like side effect which got worse by the hour. Then the severe pain started in jaws, elbows, knees, ankles and then in my heels. The flu like feeling lasted about 3 days and it was NOT mild. The severe pain in my joints lasted for several weeks - not as bad now but still there. Now 4 months later, there is still pain in my joints. The red and constant pain in my heels has not gone away. I have bought new shoes, use gels in my shoes and cannot relieve the pain in my heels. NEVER had problems in my heels before reclast or the joint pains that are constant now even though not as severe as they were in the beginning.

Before Reclast had no problems. The swelling in one ankle caused tendon issues and now I need to wear a brace!! My hair has thinned out and become very fine.

 1  To strengthen bones Severe joint pain started less than 12 hours after my mother's one and only IV of Reclast. This was a year and a half ago and my mother still has trouble with pain in different parts of her body. It changes from one area to another throughout the day. Nausea, general unwell feeling. I would not recommend this drug to anyone. My mother's life has not been the same since the day she had this IV. She was very active before taking the drug and hasn't golfed now in a year and a half and sometimes is even unable to babysit her grandchildren. F 76

 4  Osteoporosis None. I was advised to drink plenty of water before the infusion to lessen the effects on the kidneys, and told me to make sure I got sufficient calcium. I did not have any pain resulting from this medication. I'm satisfied with it. I had taken Fosamax for 4 years before that and had GERD from that. My doctor was concerned Fosamax could cause Barret's Esophagus, so Reclast was a better solution. F 54 2 years

 1  osteopedia Flu like symptom - pure hogwash. This is pain. The nurse that administered the IV said just take Tylenol. You better have Vicodin on hand. This is my third day after the IV and the pain in my neck. at the base of the bulbs on the back of the head and the acute headaches have diminished. [not completely gone] The pain in my spine, hips, even rib cage is still there. The general feeling of malaise is strong. Just getting out of bed is most difficult. Forget any work, appointments, or housework. My precious husband asked what he could do for me. I said ' Just shoot me!' I wonder what it will continue to do to me. And I feel for the poor animals they put through torture to get this sorry stuff to market. DON'T DO IT! Here is an idea. Let's give reclast iv to everyone involved in producing and marketing etc. beginning at the top. Bet their definition of side effects changes. F 64 1 years

 1   Post polio and took Reclast April 11,2011 bad drug to take was not given good advise on taking this drug having had polio. Terrible pain,joint , muscle, bone and general body aches and lack of energy. Will not ever take any drugs like this again. Doctors need to be better informed and drug companies need to stop trying to make us believe that what they put out there is for everyone. Just wanting to make money at all costs. F 66

 1  Severe Osteoporosis About 12 hrs after getting a 20 minute infusion, I awoke with the worst chills I have ever experienced, debilitating pain in every joint, muscle and bone from my head to my toes. Now 7 days later, I wake up to a different area of my body in pain. My fingers, my toes, my hips, back, arms and legs, but the most debilitating is the base of my skull and my neck. I had 2 consecutive compression fractures of the spine within 3 mos. and the pain was not this bad, I also knew it would eventually mend, so there at least was a light at the end of the tunnel. With this you don't know what horror is coming next. There should be a class action suit for all of those that had a bad reaction. I'm angry at myself for taking my doctor's advice, and not doing more research. I wish I could turn back the clock . F 64 1 days
