Post Reclast

Has anyone been on the "once a year Osteoporosis drugs?" My doctor brought it up because I can't handle any of the pill kind, and is it very expensive? I have had a fractured T12 recently

Re: Reclast

My doctor wanted me to use Reclast but I decided not to due to reported problems with jaw necrosis. My dentist out right said that he would not work on me if I took this medication and I have alot of dental problems. That's why I was put on Forteo. Now the doctor brought up the issue the other day since my Forteo treatment will be finished in a year. I think insurances cover the injection if the doctor properly documents why the patient can't take pills.

Winston55,
It's good to hear that you didn't have any side effects from the medication. Did your insurance cover it?

Re: Reclast

It didn't cost me anything. Medicare and Blue Cross paid every thing.
