i had my first reclast treatment april 25th and i have not had any side effect. i will have another treatment next year and hope for the same results. i want know how effective it is until i have another bone scan. i think if you drink plenty of water and take ibuprofen you will be just fine. the hardest part is getting the IV. once you get past that it is a breeze.

Comment:
Diagnosed w/severe osteoporosis, I tool Boniva for 10months before experiencing severe stomach cramps in month 10. THen, Reclast.

Wondering if the monthly-occurrence of week-long diarrhea/soft stool of past 2 m ... Show Full Comment
