I am a female, 86, and I have had 5 spinal fractures. I tried everything available before taking Reclast. I have had 5 treatments (5 years) and no more fractures, no side effects.

I've been taking Boniva for two years. I had a slight increase in my neck and spine, but a decrease in my hips. Why would it only be working in some areas?
