Myasthenia Gravis HAVE to be on osteoporosis med. I'm severe!Interactions with Reclast (zoledronic acid) IV & MG? Scared once in system what if it flares my MG?

In brief: Osteoporosis meds

One issue with some medications used in rheumatoid arthritis, is presence of anti-tumor necrosis factor action, which can make MS worse, but this mechanism does not seem salient in osteoporosis drugs, and these would be very unlikely to adversely affect Myasthenia, as Reclast (zoledronic acid) does not affect acetylcholine in any profound way.
Discuss further with your doctor, but I do NOT see a problem.
