Aclasta (Reclast; Zoledronate) is a bisphosphonate medicine used to treat and prevent thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) and to treat a condition called Paget's disease.
Aclasta is given once a year by an intravenous (IV) infusion. Infusions take about 15 minutes and must be done at a specialized clinic by a nurse or doctor.
It's important to take calcium & vitamin D while taking Aclasta to help build the bones. Doctors who prescribe Aclasta will advise their patients on the right amount of calcium and vitamin D to take.
