Zoledronic Acid: I need feed back for this drug please

Posted by kathysway @kathysway, Sep 25, 2019

I just went on Monday and had my first treatment of Zoledronic Acid and that night I had a very high fever and felt so very sick I wasn’t aware that this could happen I read all the paperwork but I was so very sick I was shacking from being so cold the next day I called the Dr and was told if I get the high temp again to go to the ER my question is has anyone else had this happen and does it happen every time you get the treatment I’ll be getting this every 6 months thank you for any and all answers

The first time I had the Zoledronic acid I felt like I had the flu and was very tired. I slept all night and stayed in bed the next day, then I was fine. The next two times I had no reaction at all, maybe just a little tired. That was my experience. Good luck! 😀

I've only had one infusion and was pooped for a week, but I'm not good at drugs. One friend has had a number and she was affected for a week, then the next ones no problem at all. Side effects are flu-like feelings, fever, and fatigue.

I'd like to also bring @hockeymom25 and @mbear into this discussion. They talked about their experiences with Zoledronic Acid in this discussion a while back and may have more experiences to share today:

HI there, I too had a rough reaction that first time with chills, exhaustion and just down. The good news is, true to what they said I only had that reaction the first time. Every other time, I either had no reaction or just a little tired for a day or two. I've been getting every 6 months for about 3 years. Hope all goes well!

I've had two treatment, both time mild flu like symptoms for few says. No high fever.
The Dr also told me not to have dental work around same time I have the infusions. Laurie

What is this drug and what do you take it for? I have never heard of it before.

REPLY

@kathysway I had the exact same reaction. Ended up in ER. I now get a shot of Xgeva every 3 months. I have only a few aches for a few days after. Ask tour doctor if it's an alternative.

REPLY

I had my first treatment of Zometa, was on Xgeva before with no side effects. The first treatment of Zometa was not a pleasant experience. I had flu like sypmptoms and felt like someone beat the crap out of me. Do any of you have problems with your teeth or jawbone with Zometa?

Does anyone has Zometa infusion? My doctor just recommend that to me.
I'd like to do some research and learn more on this drug.
Thanks.

I've had two so far three months apart. About 2 days prior I get blood work done. They take about a half hour. I tend to feel achy and tired for about a week or so after having them done. However, I had a horrific fall on my knee and didn't fracture so it must be working.

When will you start with treatment? What questions might you like to ask?

REPLY

After treatment I usually slept most of the day. For the next couple of days I felt like I had the flu. I had two treatments three months a part. Sameness feeling both times.
