Angry Reclast Infusion Cost Increase

I had a Reclast infusion 13 months ago. The charge for the drug was $2449.77 at my local hospital. This year's charge was $6311.56! After speaking with Novartis (the drug manufacturer) and the local hospital, I was told these charges are correct. Has anyone else experienced this type of price increase for Reclast?

Re: Reclast Infusion Cost Increase

I had no idea it was that expensive! Dr just told me she wanted me to take it. Did you have side effects?

I had no long term side effects with either infusion. I had a little soreness in my fingers (especially the pinky) for a couple of days only. Have you had the infusion yet?

No I just had another scan yesterday. I think I want to see a kidney dr first too.
