Has Anyone Had IV Treatment?

Has Anyone Had IV Treatment?

Since I cannot take Calcium, my dr recommended yearly IV treatment for osteoporosis. I’m not certain I want to do this. Has anyone else received these treatments.

You might consider adding supplemental Vitamin K2 to your regime. It acts as a catalyst to calcium and Vitamin D3. Jarrow makes a good one. Vitamin K might be contraindicated if you must also take a blood thinner.

No it’s medication Reclast, once a year for 4-5 years. I’m reluctant because if I have any side effects the medication stays in you for a year. I have IBS and cannot tolerate calcium.
I take magnesium, Vit D, and try to eat foods with high calcium . I’m thinking of getting a trainer and doing resistance training, and exercising more with Yoga.

Not sure I understand Felicia. Are the IV infusions calcium or some other substance? This treatment is one I have not heard of before.
