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.

After reading 400 reviews I was terrified to try this drug knowing that it would be in my system for 6 months. I have a hard time tolerating medicine. I usually quit before I finish. I also have a hard time swallowing so this was a good option. I decided to try and hope for the best. To my surprise it is now 2 months after my shot. It was easy to get the shot and I have not had any side effects ... Show Full Comment
