Any Zometa Patients experience side effects?

Have been on Zometa and am experiencing tooth problems and hair loss. Anyone else with problems?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Osteoporosis & Bone Health Support Group.

Is it a jaw bone issue and could you share how many infusions you’ve had. I wasn’t aware of any side effects related to hair loss but these drugs very powerful. I was so hesitant about Zometa even though often recommended as I have invasive lobular breast cancer but I opted for weekly pill, Fosamax but I’m not sure it gets adequately absorbed. Have you experienced any improvement in your DEXA numbers? Xoxo


I've had 2 infusions and just cancelled the 3rd because of bone loss in most teeth and I now must have periodontal anti-bacterial treatment. Arestin is the dentist choice for treatment. It has not been studied in patients with weakened immune systems and I have undifferentiated connective tissue disease. I am trying to get more information on this product.
Hair loss, brittle finger and toe nails with very dry cuticles even if I wear gloves for house work and sleep with Cetaphil and cotton gloves . Don't have new DEXA numbers
