Reclast Side Effects?

Reclast Side Effects?

I had chills that were unreal, some vomiting, felt very weak like I would easily black out, fatigue overall I was MISERABLE and scared for 24 hours. I felt somewhat disoriented. I am really hesitant to try again. Others?

from Web MD Reclast Side Effects
Nausea, tiredness, flu-like symptoms (e.g., fever, chills, muscle/joint aches), dizziness, headache, or pain/redness/swelling at the injection site may occur. Most of these side effects are mild and occur within 3 days of treatment. Flu-like symptoms may be reduced by taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen after the treatment. If any of these effects worsen or last more than 4 days, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Tell your doctor right away if you have any serious side effects, including: increased or severe bone/joint/muscle pain, new or unusual hip/thigh/groin pain, jaw/ear pain, unusual weakness, eye problems (e.g., redness/itching/swelling, sensitivity to light), muscle spasms, numb/tingling skin, irregular heartbeat, sores in jaw/mouth.

Get medical help right away if you have any serious side effects, including: signs of kidney problems (such as change in the amount of urine), seizures.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

I had a terrible reaction to Recast which led to my fainting that evening when I got up from bed. I was lucky nothing broke! I won't do any of those meds again.
