Hi and welcome.
Calcium infusion is used for treatment of low calcium levels and to prevent bone fractures specially in postmenopausal women.
Common side effects of calcium infusion include flu-like symptoms such as fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and muscle or joint pain. Taking acetaminophen help reduce these side effects, which usually occur less frequently following subsequent treatments. Calcium infusion also poses the risk of some potentially serious side effects including high blood calcium levels, a rare type of thigh bone fracture, severe kidney problems or osteonecrosis – problems with the jawbone. Some individuals experience allergic reactions such as hives or swelling of the face, lips or tongue. Contact your doctor if you develop these or other symptoms including numbness, tingling or severe bone, joint or muscle pain.
