... Without sufficient vitamin D in your body, taking calcium is worthless as you need the D as an adjunct. I am wondering if this would extrapolate to infusion drugs, as I know it would relate to oral meds like Fosamax and Boniva. You may consider ensuring you have enough Vit D before you go any further. ... (3 replies)
... I hope someone has used infusion Boniva although my doctor said I was her first referral. That's scary. I did call the company today and they are sending me some information in the mail. ... (5 replies)
... I'm sorry to hear this. I don't have an answer to your question but how are you doing increasing your bone density? Has the medication helped? Besides the kidney stone, do you have other side effects from the medication? Sorry for all the questions but this treatment was recommended to me. So you are receiving injections and not having the medication given by IV infusion? Did... (7 replies)

... the short infusion time. I'm not too interested in doing such a short infusion time for any bisphosphonate simply becuase I did experience that very mild tingling at the lips and wrists at the 2 hour drip rate. ... (13 replies)

... like symptoms. However, I was at Mayo Clinic in MN for several days and there are people there from all over the world. I had the infusion at Mayo. What I experienced were CHILLS, the queasies, not quite nausea, and some intermittent, traveling aches. They lasted about 8 hours or so. ... (13 replies)
... The only other option is IV infusions of either Boniva or Reclast. I'm not particular as to either one though I'd rather try it with Boniva first if I have to. It would only be in my system for 3 months vs one year for Reclast. ... (7 replies)
... Welcome. I don't blame you for stopping the Actonel being hesitant to try Boniva. I only lasted with 3 Fosamax doses because it burned my stomach then got switched to Forteo.

... chronie, I have celiac disease, so I'm thinking that is why the endo mentioned the IV Boniva. I really don't want to try the Fosomax, I'm still undecided. Is my T score of -2.5 that bad? I'm glad to hear that the Forteo helped you. Maybe that's the route I'll go. The endo mentioned with my celiac that I am probably not absorbing the vitamin D. We'll see I guess. Thanks! (3 replies)
