I was looking around for info on Zometa and found your comment here.
My son was given clarithromicine for h. pylori while on NORVASC and enlapril. (norvasc calcium blocker) this was not supposed to be done I have learned later. He has an underlying condition that was made worst. (Mitochondrial disease)
They gave him steroids for a month and after that his calcium in the blood levels are dangerously high. He's complaining of bone pains and the such. Zometa was mentioned by a pharmacist.
Before this offer I thought of silica. My sons Vit D is fine.
I noticed the gentleman in the post you were replying to also started silica. What is your thoughts on silica as the Dr. had no interest in it and said something about lung issues or something.
