My doctor wants me to receive an injection of Reclast. I've been doing some research on this and it is in the same class as Boniva. A few years ago she gave me a sample of Boniva. I did as directed and had the most horrible pain within a day of taking it and the pain lasted for quite a while. Needless to say, I did not get the prescription filled. She prescribed Evista and have been on that for a few years now along with Calcium and Vit. D3. I am very leery about Reclast being that I had the same adverse side effects with Boniva. Are there any
alternatives to this? I'm a young 62, lift weight and in great health. I'm just worried that once I get the injection and have the same pain, then I'm pretty much stuck with this until it subsides and that could take a while. Any suggestions of maybe alternatives to this is greatly appreciated.
