  • You don't need to take either, you can do it with natural minerals without all those side effects.  Please read my experience with osteoporosis from October 13, 2019 titled "Reversing Osteoporosis with the mineral strontium.  It has decades of documented results and it is free of side effects.  I am on my way to normal bone density!

  • Thank you. My Rheumatologist is suggesting to take Prolea. But I am not sure if transplant patients can take it or not.  

  • I am sorry you are having difficulties with Fosamax. I am a multivisceral transplant patient, and I have been treated for my osteoporosis by yearly infusions of Reclast. I have had a lot of  trouble with reflux and other digestive system issues, and I like that Reclast is not so likely to aggravate that as would taking a form of alendronate might. It is also convenient that I only have to deal with it once a year. I was started on a form of daily alendronate but soon switched to Reclast. I have not had any side effects from the Reclast infusion. Some people may experience some flulike symptoms afterwards so it is suggested that a person might want to take an acetaminophen before the infusion. I have not had to do this. I mainly focus on keeping well hydrated the day of the infusion so that getting an IV in me is easier and so that my body will process the medication better. This is just my experience. I hope that you and your doctor can figure out what will work best for you. 

    Warm regards,
