Comment:
I am nearing the end of my first 6 month injection and will go for the second. I have had very minor side effects, nothing that I could not tolerate, especially if it improves my bone mass.

Experienced many side effects such as severe headaches,muscle spasms,trembling/shaking,nausea, vomiting, etc. More importantly it has hindered my ability to heal from a bruise or a wound/cut. I have only had one treatment but I definitely will not take another. The numerous side effects are not worth it.

Comment:
NEVER !!! Update four months after the first and what will be my last injection. After the swelling of my face along with burning sensation I also experienced facial tics in my face. I have had several urinary tract infections and yeast infections. The pain has been terrible throughout the last four months. My teeth hurt so badly it feels like I need fillings. After symptoms ease they become sever ... Show Full Comment
