I can’t take most tablets as they gIve me stomach ulcers. I requested the annual infusion of Zolendronic Acid instead. I’m having the second one next month. The only side effect was feeling very shivery for the rest of that day.

Hi Kathy thanks for sharing. Do you get this product at the health store? Do you take any vitamins,supplements with this? Are you on any. Prescription drugs?. Sorry for all the questions but this is all new to me.
