When they started coming back in, they are turning under, and I have to go to my Ophathamologist to have the eyelashes ... Show Full Comment

I've had four Prolia injections and regret having taken this drug. The problems began creeping up on me until they got out of control after the fourth injection. I am prone to occasional herpes and acne, and now these infections are pronounced and chronic. I'm taking antiviral and antibiotic medications to control these conditions until the Prolia gets out of my system. I have other compla ... Show Full Comment

My Mom had this shot twice and after the first shot she told her dr that it gave her flu like symptoms. Dr said that was not possible.
