Aug 13, 2019 · Reclast Infusion in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hi all. New to Connect and everyone's comments and experiences have been very helpful. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis a few months ago and my RA ordered me to get the Prolia infusion. Unfortunately, my insurance turned it down and said I had to first try the Reclast infusion for a year before going on to Prolia. I'm scheduled to have the infusion in a few weeks. I asked the infusion center if there were any immediate side effects (meaning right after the infusion) I needed to worry about and if I needed someone to drive me home (I live 40 miles from where the infusion will be). She said that was up to me and every person is different. Really? I would think it's a yes or no question. Has anyone had a bad experience right after the infusion or am I good to drive for about a 90 minutes after the procedure (I work in the Washington, DC area, thus the long commute). Thanks!
