FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: RECLAST

User Comments:


For Prevention of Osteoporosis “Less than 36 hrs after my first Reclast infusion I began shivering violently for over 2 hrs. Then I spiked a temp of 102.7. Within 24 hrs that had gone. Day 4 post infusion my left arm, wrist and hand began to hurt. This was the arm I received the infusion in. Now it has been 8 days since the infusion and each day the pain gets worse in my arm and hand. When I awaken the entire area is swollen and so painful even a sheet touching my fingertips brings excruciating pain. 2 extra strength Tylenol last about one hour. 4 Ibuprofen last about the same. Aleve (Naproxen) will last about 6 hrs. 2 Tylenol #3 gives relief for about 2 hrs. The pain and swelling have traveled up my arm, into my upper arm above the elbow.”

For Osteoporosis “I’ve had the Reclast infusion two times now. I’m 68 and my osteoporosis is not severe, and only in a couple of areas. I haven’t experienced any side effects at all. No improved energy either, as some report. But, my doctor says my bone density has improved following another test. So, I’ll likely continue with what he recommends.”

For Osteoporosis “two days after injection I have severe lower back pain, unable to get out of bed without assistance, couldn’t bend over, very painful on scale of 1 to 10, my pain level a 7. One week later, severe swelling of left hand fingers, very pain full. Morning headaches, very uncommon for me.”

For Osteoporosis “Last year’s infusion brought four days of fever, made difficult because I can’t take aspirin or other non steroidal anti-inflammatories. After two weeks, I’m nostalgic for those symptoms. This time body temp has stayed in the 96.4 range (95.9 this a.m.), when it’s usually 97.6-98.6, so I feel very cold–until I get a savage hot flash requiring me to mop myself off with a towel, at least once an hour. I also have muscle cramps waking me up several times a night (more than prior to treatment). I’ve been lightheaded and fatigued. I also have fibromyalgia, but these symptoms are different/more intense. The doc told me he can do nothing. I’m frantic because I need to work and find that almost impossible. Anyone else with a situation like mine?”

For Prevention of Osteoporosis “(FOR MALE JUVENILE OSTEOPOROSIS)While this medicine did seem to increase my bone density in the long run, the night after caused far more pain then the injury that fractured my spine, though this could be on account of my age. PLEASE be sure to check with your doctor over how it may effect you. That being said, calcium supplements and medication over a longer period of time also helped, even without a second Reclast treatment.”

For Osteoporosis “Do not use this drug or any bisphosphonate. The first year I used it 3 of my fingernails had lifted off their nail bed. The 2nd year I got osteonecrosis of my left lower jaw. I loss 3 teeth, cannot have implants due to poor bone quality. The 3rd year my doctor had decided not to give it to me. I still suffered side effects of this drug. I was standing in one place ironing a shirt when I heard a pop in my leg and could feel my femur moving over. That was 2 years ago and my femur is still fractured. I just had my 4th surgery and hoping this heals my fracture.”
