I had the Prolia injection on Jan, 30, 2015. The only side effect I have experienced is dizziness when I lean over. This started the week of Feb. 22, 2015. So far I have had no other side effects.

I would NEVER get another injection of Prolia. Worst pain in my bones that I have ever felt in my entire life in lower back and hips. Plus itching intensely. Would rather have another broken bone.
