Thank you for the information,
As you may already know, Reclast is given through an IV. Because of this, you should not experience the side effect of acid reflux that you had with the fosamax and actonel.
If you tolerated them well otherwise, you likely will do well with the Reclast.
Common side effects that may occur within about 3-4 days after receiving the IV dose include joint pains, flu-like symptoms and muscle aches. This occurs in up to half of people who receive it and can last up to two weeks. If you take acetominophen before the IV dose and for 72 hours afterwards, this is thought to lessen the symptoms.
Other potential side effects include elevated blood pressure, nausea, low blood calcium,
bone pain, swelling, dizziness, upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, jaw problems.
The list of potential side effects is actually quite long but again, if you did well overall with the actonel and fosamax, you likely will do well with the reclast.
It should not be used if you have any kidney problems.
The one problem with Reclast is this--because it is given once per year, it stays in your system for a long time. This means if you have side effects, they can last for quite a while.
