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.

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.

Comment:
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.
