Aclasta Infusions for Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis can lead to fractures that have major health consequences, especially in older patients. Several medications can reduce this risk significantly
A large number of patients are unable to tolerate Fosamax/alendronate (an oral medication taken weekly) because of gastrointestinal side effects. An alternative is an infusion of Aclasta/zoledronate, given into a vein every 1-2 years. This has far fewer gastrointestinal side effects. Our nurses are trained to insert IV lines and can assist our doctors to infuse Aclasta.
