Reclast Instructions for Patients

  • To minimize a small risk of jaw infections, avoid scheduling your reclast in close proximity (within 6-8 weeks) of major dental procedures (not including routing teeth cleaning), or while you have an oral infection or toothache.
  • Let our office know if you are currently taking any other medication for osteoporosis, such as: Zometa, alendronate (Fosamax), Actonel, Boniva, Forteo, or Prolia
  • Let our office know if you are currently receiving treatment for cancer.
  • You should not take reclast if you have significant kidney disease. We will require a recent test of your kidney function prior to scheduling the infusion.
  • On the day of the infusion, you may eat and take your medications as usual.
  • The infusion will be done through an IV, and will take approximately 15 minutes.
  • You may notice mild flu-like symptoms for 1-2 days following the infusion, which should be mild and may include low-grade fever. You may take Tylenol as needed, but contact our office if symptoms are severe.
