      They can give you Benadryl before treatment. My husband gets Zometa once a month. It has kept the cancer in his bones (hip and spine area) held back for about 19 months as of date. They had told us if he had a reaction that benadryl can be added. He has not needed it. No reaction whatsoever.

      I am so sorry!!! Not 19 months. Should read 9 months. They are going to change it by his next date of Sept. 10 to a stronger drug. We will see. Don't know what it is yet.
