    Do not let your elderly parent take this Prolia shot! Extreme fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, calcium and potassium crashes leading to low kidney function, nausea/vomiting with no counter active measures. Shot taken 3 weeks ago and these effects are still severe with no end in sight!

    Thought this would be an easy alternative to the other medications treating osteoporosis at this time. However, had my first shot and had horrible back pain, pain in every bone and joint along with extreme fatigue. I had to go to ER for kidney stones. Acquired an infection in my abdomen and had to take Keflex for a month which of course caused a yeast infection. My teeth which were in very goo ... Show Full Comment

    After four(5?)injections, I experienced severe pain in my knee and shin. The pain was about an 8 or 9 on a scale of 10, and did not occur because of any fall, injury, or joint stress. It came from deep in the bone and would throb. Much worse at night, to the point that I could not sleep. I have been taking codeine for two weeks to get through the pain, and it has eased up quite a bit. But once the ... Show Full Comment
