Question from BCar: Does Reclast have the same possible protection from breast cancer as Fosamax and Actonel?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. Both Reclast (chemical name: zoledronic acid) and Actonel (chemical name: risedronate) are in the same class of drugs called bisphosphonates, but they have not been directly compared, so there is no data to allow us to answer your question.
