As so often happens with new osteoporosis drugs – and Reclast infusion is a fairly new treatment – the truth becomes shrouded as pharmaceutical companies make grabs for money, power, recognition, and more money. The humble osteoporosis patient gets lost in the proverbial shuffle. She hears the doctor’s diagnosis of osteoporosis as if it were a deadly disease, and she hears the doctor’s prescription for a drug that is supposed to help. She also hears how this new drug is superior to oral bisphosphonates, because this one is delivered directly into the bloodstream in the form of an infusion. This means no gastric side effects! And now the icing on the cake: she only has to take the Reclast infusion once a year, and the procedure takes only 15 minutes!
This patient may then mistakenly think that the problem of nasty side effects of osteoporosis drugs is solved. I hope this anonymous patient finds the Save Our Bones site in time, because the unfortunate truth is that Reclast infusion is a new treatment with an old story.
Sadly, more than one case of Reclast infusion has resulted in deadly kidney failure, leaving hurt and confusion behind. Why didn’t the doctor warn them? Those who survive the horrible side effects of Reclast infusion are also left wondering why they weren’t warned of these possible side effects. They are also left with lasting side effects from renal toxicity.
What is causing all this confusion? It’s not only a lack of information; it’s also bad information. It’s the old story of osteoporosis drugs being touted as “the” cure for this “disease,” only to find out that horrible side effects are just around the corner. Why didn’t the doctor warn you? It’s entirely possible that he or she isn’t even aware of the risks. In fact, as I pointed out in this post, the FDA was being urged to tell Novartis, the maker of Reclast, to give proper warning information to those physicians who prescribe their drug.
The Old Story
Here are some things you may not have thought about in connection with Reclast infusion, this new treatment with an old story.
- Reclast stays in your system for at least a year (hence the annual treatment). This means that you’re stuck with the drug and its side effects for as long as it’s in your system. If you experience unpleasant side effects, there’s no way to stop taking Reclast; it’s in your body for a year, doing its damage.
- Renal failure as a result of Reclast infusion can quickly become fatal as doctors can’t remove the drug from your bloodstream.
- There’s no accurate way to tell just how much Reclast is in your system before you receive your second dose the following year. For some patients, the second treatment is “too much” and the renal failure results from the toxic overload.
Too Much at Stake
There’s just too much at stake to even try Reclast infusion. It’s not just a question of brittle bones and the “usual” side effects of bisphosphonates; this treatment goes farther, delving into the dangerous territory of intentional toxicity to obtain an effect. This may be a fair trade off in life-threatening diseases, but it’s simply too great a risk for osteoporosis, which isn’t even a disease! It’s just a matter of healthful balance, and Save Our Bones can get you there. There’s nothing confusing about this science-backed program, and it’s totally risk-free (I even have a 365 days Money Back Guarantee). As I said in another post, the Osteoporosis Reversal Program is not just another natural treatment – it’s the treatment! It’s the only thing that really works because it restores your body to a place of balance.
