    Although I questioned thoroughly about pancreatitis & other side effects, I was assured this injection was safe. I had given self-injections for 2 yrs of Forteo. Within in weeks of 1st Prolia injection, I did not feel well. Body pain, fibromyalia, increased reflux & pancreatitis within 3months. ER with lots of very expensive imaging tests. Still being monitored with blood tests. NO more Pr ... Show Full Comment

    I am so thankful I didn't read these reviews before starting this drug. I've had 3 injections and have experienced only a few side-effects starting at about the 10th day, mostly just aching bones, that lasts for 3 weeks(+-). Every person's body reacts differently to drugs. Don't make the decision not to use Prolia based on what other people have written - seriously, how many people ... Show Full Comment

    I have had 4 Prolia injections, beginning in October 2011. I have back pain which has gotten progressively more severe, and with my doctor's approval I have decided no more Prolia, as my quality of life has been affected and I have had to give up playing piano and organ. Sitting on a bench without a back is now too painful. I have osteoporosis and I am 72 years old.
