Zolendronic Acid, Zometa, Bisophonates
I wanted to ask about Zolendronic Acid, Ihave recently had my 3rd Bisophante injection. It had been postponed due to the Covid Pandemic, my Oncologist informed me that this wouldn't matter too much. I also had a bone scan which shows no abnormalities, so I am happy to continue with the bi annual infusion. My questions are these:-
Why do some patients have Demonusub rather than Zolendronic Acid?
Does anyone know the reason some patients should NOT take ibuprofen after the infusion?
Is there an advantage in having this infusion over a long period of time rather than a fast injection.
What is the optimal dose
Has anyone felt the dreadful after effects of whole body aches, or any other S.E's
I would be grateful for any tips, advice etc.. I am being given conflicting advice from my health care professionals.
