Hi, I usually post on the Ostomies board, but was recently diagnosed with osteoperosis, and after taking Evista for 2 years with no results, (I only had osteopenia when I started Evista), my doctor wants me to take Reclast infusion.  I have acid issues, so I'm limited to what I can take.
Has anyone had reclast, and were the side effects horrible?  My doctor (I went to see a rheumatologist) says I could have flu like symptoms, but to take tylenol before the infusion and for a few days afterwards.  In her practice, she said one older man (in his late 70's) had to stay in bed for a week because he felt so weak, but that's the most extreme she's seen.  She also said alot of people had no side effects at all.
Anyone have any experience?
thanks so much,
