Well, I had my 1st Reclast infusion, Thursday. I had it done at a Out patient Infusion Center so there were several other people for a fusion. I think I may be having a few side affects and was wondering if any one else may have these? I have felt so tired and sleepy all day since the infusion and had some nausea that my Dr. had given some meds. before the fusion. Also, I've had a huge headache since then, along with aches in my legs and other parts of my body. I've had a horrible time writing this e-mail and had to correct my spelling more than I have ever had to do. Any suggestions would be helpful

I would give your doctor a call and report these possible side effects. It may be the medication, it may not-but all side effects need to be reported. Even the doctor on call should be able to help you over the weekend.
Susan Randall, RN, FNP-BC, MSN responded:
In addition to reporting these possible medication side effects to your doctor, you can also report them to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by calling (800) 332-1088 or visiting . You can also contact Novartis, the company that manufactures Reclast, by calling (888) 669-6682.

Are you going to continue with the Reclast treatment, after having suffered these side-effects?
