Was unable to tolorate Fasomax or Actonel. Since I had such a drastic reaction to actonel, I did my home work with Prolia. Visited four doctors for advise. OBGYN, Endocrin, GP and Othopedist. Today is six months since I had my first and last Prolia shot. I have been to more doctors in this six month period than any other six months in my life.

I am about to have my 5th injection of Prolia. I've just had a bone density test and have a 10% improvement in my hips and spine. My doctor (endocrinologist) has told me that even if there is not any improvement and the bones remain the same that that is good! When taking Fosamax my bones decreased with each scan. I'm very happy. I do go to the gym 3x a week and am very active. I have ... Show Full Comment

I took about 3 injections with no recognizable side effects but continued to have bone loss. Just had a bone scan showing the bone loss. Now on to Reclast.

Comment:
My first injection was 9 months ago. Real easy to get a shot. No side effects at all. Then my 2nd shot 3 months ago. I haven't been able to sleep at night because of the severe back, leg and hip pain. Didn't know until today that it was the Prolia that was causing it. I sure wish I had read some reviews instead of the pamphlet that came with the medicine before I agreed to take it. ... Show Full Comment
