Reclast for Paget's Disease

Reclast® (zoledronic acid) is a bisphosphonate medication used for many purposes, such as:
 
  • Treating Paget's disease of the bone
  • Preventing and treating osteoporosis in postmenopausal women
  • Treating osteoporosis in men.
  •  
This medication comes in the form of an injection. When treating Paget's disease, your healthcare provider will give Reclast as a single dose. In some situations, retreatment may be recommended; however, this type of use has not been studied.
 
Not everyone with Paget's disease will need to be treated with a bisphosphonate. Reclast is recommended for those who:
 
  • Have very high alkaline phosphatase levels (a measure of how severe the disease is)
  • Have symptoms of Paget's disease
  • Are at risk for future complications of Paget's disease.
  •
