They claim this will REBUILD my bones, and this is what I need. It is suppose to reverse bone loss and damage. I am on my 3rd month. It does not hurt if you put it in your thigh.

cost of Reclast
I had an infusion of Reclast at an infusion center in June 2010 and my Medicare HMO received a bill for over $7000 for which they paid $5800 claiming that was the average price that Medicare allows. My local pharmacy as well as an online quote was $1000 at the time. Why is there such a vast difference between a hospital charge and the retail market price? ## Reclast contains the active ingredient Zoledronic Acid, it is used to prevent bone fractures in cancer patients and people with certain other health issues. The reason there is such a huge difference is because, when at the hospital or infusion center, you are paying for a lot more than just the drug. You're also paying to use their equipment, the time you are taking up space to have it done there and the salaries/wages of any p... ...

reclast side effects
I took Prolia and I have severe discomfort in my mouth. I am afraid that Reclast will do as much harm as Prolia. The doctor wants me on Reclast but I am very afraid of the jaw problem and the pain in my mouth is horrible. My tongue and my lips have given me some kind of reaction allergic and feels swollen. I am also afraid of loosing some tooth. ## Hello, Lala! How are you? It is a different type of drug, but to be honest, there have also been a lot of issues reported by those that have tried it. The best suggestion I can make is to go in and sit down with your doctor and have a heart to heart covering your fears and concerns. Have them give you the full side effect information, so they can help you make a fully informed decision. And remember, no matter what your doctor 'wants'... ...

osteoporosis/REclast
had a reclast injection12/8/09 I had shorten on breath after the body aches and slight fever is this normal? I have rapid heartbeat everytime I try to doing anything like running the sweeper, dusting & etc. ## Flu-like symptoms exist in about 15% of patients who have Reclast (meaning 85% don't experience it). Your doctor should have told you to take Tylenol the day of your infusion and for three days following the infusion. You should have also drank two glasses of water the morning of the infusion, and eat normally. The body aches have been seen in clinical trials, but this is the case for all drugs in the class (to include Fosamax, Boniva, and Actonel). FYI, when a patient takes Reclast, 61% of the solution binds straight to the bones where it's needed and the remaining 39... ...

Reclast, in my 30s, want to get pregnant
Does anyone know of anyone that is in their 30's or so that have done this treatment for osteoporosis. I know of only older people who have done it. I would just like to know what it is like for them. I have severe pain all the time and I did the treatment 4 months ago. I would like to try to get pregnant but do not know of anyone who has done this while on Reclast. IF there are women who have please respond. There is not much research about pregnancy and Reclast. Just that it is not a good idea. ## Do not take Reclast if you are trying to get pregnant. ## Liz is correct, while human studies on pregnant women are considered unethical, animals studies have shown that it is very dangerous. They found that Reclast caused seriously increased rates of miscarriage and stillbirth. It has a... ...

PROLIA FOR OSTEOPOROSIS, I DON'T THINK IT'S A GOOD DRUG TO TAKE. RECLAST HAS IT'S OWN PROBLEMS
IT SEEMS THAT AFTER READING ALL THE REMARKS ON HERE THAT NONE OF US SHOULD CONTINUE ON WITH THIS DRUG !!! IT'S RUNNING HAVOC ON ALL OF THOSE WHO HAVE TAKEN IT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO TAKE NEXT, BUT I KNOW ENOUGH NOT TO TAKE ANYMORE OF "THESE CANCER DRUGS ! " PERHAPS THERE IS NOTHING LEFT FOR ME TO TAKE, IN ANY CASE IT WILL NOT BE A DRUG USED FOR CANCER !!! OUR BODIES ARE FIGHTING PROLIA, SO IT SEEMS THAT IT IS NO GOOD FOR US W/OSTEOPOROSIS. THERE WILL MOST LIKELY BE A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ABOUT PROLIA IN THE NEAR FUTURE. ...

I Would Like To Compare Prices For Reclast Infusion Since Was Charged An Exorbitant Amount At A Hospital Centerdu
What is the allowable payment by Medicare for a15 minute reclast infusion at an outpatient hospital center. My HMO was charged $7000 for the drug and paid 80% leaving a charge to me of 20%. My local pharmacy charges $1200 for a prescription so my question is why the vast difference in price. ## I don't have any information on what the Medicare allowable payment for it is, but I can explain the different in price from the pharmacy to the hospital. When you receive a medication at the hospital you are paying for way more than just the medication. You are paying fees for using their equipment, the time you are taking up space in their center, the salary of the person that's administering it, the IV equipment and you get the picture. It's the same reason you can buy a bottle of ... ...

Jaw Bone Deterioration
I had two Reclast intravenous drugs; one in '08 & '09. In 2008 I had sinus lift augmentation with placement of 10 implants. In 2011, I lost one implant on the top & in 2012, I lost another implant on top again. I went to see my oral surgeon in July '12 and he told me that there was nothing he could do to help me as the bone in my upper jaw is severely deteriorated. Then I went to see a Prosthrodontist in Baltimore and he too could not make me a plate due to the severity of the upper bone. I subsequently learned that I cannot sue the drug company because they put on there indications about possible Jaw Bone problems. I do not remember my doctor telling me about the jaw bone problems prior to having the oral surgery. I am 63 years old & now left to flounder because... ...

2 yr side effects: bone pain & pregnancy
I just turned 26 and received a reclast infusion 2 years ago (the 23rd of Jan) will be 2 years exact. I'm a disabled vet. Since day once I have experienced severe bone pain. One endocrinologist told me if I were to get pregnant I would be a ticking time bomb. There is not one diagnosis to show how long it remains in your system, that It's all a guess. Nor can any one check to see if reclast is still in your bones. No OB/GYN knew about reclast, or believed at my age I could have full blown osteoporosis. Not could they tell me if it was risky to carry a child two years after infusion. Yet I did my research and it shows In animal studies malformations and miscarriages can occur (miscarriagages are caused chromosomal imbalance) therefore if I miscarried it would make perfect sense i... ...

reclasp cost
How much would it cost for me to by it from you Through my DR. My wife has tried every thing and has problems with them. Humana does not want to pay any part of it. What would it cost me to buy it throught the DR? ## Are you talking about the drug Reclast ? It is manufactured by Novartis and it appears to be quite expensive. I don't think that this site sells any medications, it is a collection of discussion boards. You might try contacting Novartis directly to see if they offer any patient assistance programs: 1-800-277-2254 Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 5:00pm EST Novartis Patient Assistance Program PO Box 66556 St. Louis, MO 63166-6556 I hope this helps.

PROLIA SHOTS FOR OSTEOPOROSIS
I have read a lot of troubling facts SINCE I had thais shot, and don't know if I would takeit again in six months ! I sent my M.D. all the facts with the new black box label DRUGS NOT TO TAKE. It seems that people are having "stress" fractures from weakening of the bone tissue. Something about not re building bones but they are being torn down too fast, more than they are made. So consider this drug like all the other cancer drugs of the past for osteoporosis !! Reclast was a significant problem too ! You should feel nauseous for about one week, and you will feel like you have the flu also. Good Luck to all those who need this drug, I am in this category b/c I was on Bisphosphanates since I was 19, (now 66), had 4 doses of RECLAST, can't have that anymore either. Looks l... ...

PROLIA SHOULD BE BANNED BY FDA for Osteoporosis !!!!!
I had a shot about 4-5 months ago(due for another one), doubt I'll put that into my system again ! I now am havin bi-lateral hip pain that awakes me every night, and when I walk, I'm stiff !!! Never had these things before, so it seems to me, that the longer it's in your body, the worse off you are ! JMHO. Sent a letter to MD that gace it to me w/black box warning and it said "druge not to take". I have not heard fromher on that note. She probably has nothing else to offer me. She stopped RECLAST after 4 doses,b/c she was getting lomg bone crumbling fractures in some of her patients. So we shall see what the next round of "poison" people will think of for us !!! Good Luck to you all ## Hello, Antonette! Sorry about the pain that you're experiencing. You a... ...

PROLIA INJECTIONS
AFTER READING ALL THE ABOVE, I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT A 2ND SHOT OF THIS STUFF !! I THOUGHT RECLAST WAS BAD ENOUGH, BUT THIS IS WORSE !!! I was aware of osteonecrosis & urinary tract infections, I said oh, I get those anyway. But after the 1st shot , I feel like I went to hell for a week. Now just getting back to myself again, no more headache & nausea everyday. This is a real dillemma for me, b/c I had a total hyst @ 18, and have been on pills 45 yrs, which I can no longer take. So what's next ??? ## I'm sorry that you've been through so much. You're not the only one that's had such complaints about the Prolia injections. You can learn more Prolia details here. Have you considered looking into the natural bio-identical hormones as an option? You should che... ...
