I found out last year I have osteoperosis.  Went to see a rheumatologist last week and she wants me to have a reclast infusion.  I was on Evista for 2 years, but bone denisty actually got worse.  I have acid reflux, so some of the drugs are not an option.
 
I've heard both good and bad things about Reclast; I know flu like symptoms are common, but she said to take tylenol before infusion and every 4-6 hours for a few days if I have a reaction.  In her practice, she said she hasn't seen any horrible reactions.
 
She said not having a colon wouldn't be an issue...
 
Anyone know about this drug?
 
Thanks,
 
Janie
