2 days ago · Reclast Infusion in Bones, Joints & Muscles

@sljohns I am right to have a bad vibe about this drug. It's my only option right now if I want to discontinue Prolia. So sticking with Prolia for now. Sorry for the problems you are having.

Hi @thornwood . The "coating" my doctor referred to applies to Prolia. Reclast is a different category of medication: a bisphosphonate. It works on the bone remodeling process in a different way than Prolia.

@parrotqueen I am going to ask Dr. Specialist about the "coating" at my Wednesday a.m. appointment. Will report back.

Thanks Colleen. Think you must be a subscriber (which I may do).

@thornwood It would be so helpful if there was a doctor in this field who would address all of these questions all of us have or have heard about the quality of bone that these osteoporosis drugs create through altering the bone remodeling process. I need a research-based double-blind study kind of answer which does not seem accessible to any of us. All the standard websites including Mayo Clinic's do not answer these concerning questions. These are potent drugs . I have similar concerns regarding Prolia. On a phone apptmnt with my endocrinologist in response to a query I had, she replied that Prolia provides "a coating" . What the heck does that mean? Will pursue this at apptmnt next week for dexa scan and no.4 Prolia injection.😕

@maine hope you feel better soon. Have heard and read that this is a common temporary reaction. Sometimes happens with the first infusion.
I was considering switching from Prolia to Reclast due to side effects but decided to hold off (didnt want to try something new during Covid.
Hope you feel better soon.
