Xgeva vs Zometa

Posted by schmeeckle64 @schmeeckle64, Jan 18, 2020

Hi! My oncologist just switched me from Xgeva to zometa. Is anyone using either of these? If so have you experienced any side effects? Thank you

@schmeeckle64, are you currently experiencing side-effects? Was there a reason for the switch?

Thank you @JustinMcClanahan . I got my frist dose of zometa this last Friday. I was ok on Friday afternoon and then on Saturday I felt like someone beat the crap out of me. Every bone in my body was aching, my stomach was queezy, all I want to do is sleep and light headed. Today I feel a little better but not myself. I have no clue why my oncologist switched me since I was doing fine with the xgeva.
