Since I started taking this six-monthly shot, my osteoporosis has decreased from medium risk to low risk. I had tried some oral medication before taking Prolia 60 mg subcutaneous but they did not work for me.

Swollen lips day after injection followed by terrible inflammation on face, eyes and other areas of body. Needed to be on prednisone for 8 mos. to control reaction. Took a year for symptoms to subside. Still have lingering side effects after almost 2 years from first (and only) injection. Definitely would NOT recommend Prolia.

After reading 400 reviews I was terrified to try this drug knowing that it would be in my system for 6 months. I have a hard time tolerating medicine. I usually quit before I finish. I also have a hard time swallowing so this was a good option. I decided to try and hope for the best. To my surprise it is now 2 months after my shot. It was easy to get the shot and I have not had any side effects ... Show Full Comment
