It has been one year since my injection and I am still suffering side effects - balance problems, vertigo and pressure in my neck and head. Had to stop working and taking PT to help with balance. Worst decision I ever made. I will take calcium and Vit D and live with the osteoporosis.

Comment:
I am very satisfied with Prolia which I have been taking for just over 18 months. My bone mass has increased significantly and now I am no longer considered to have osteoporosis. Previously I had been taking a number of other medications and my bone mass continued to deteriorate. I am not aware of any side effects and am also pleased by the ease of use.

I have been receiving Prolia injections for more than 2 years and have never had one side effect. Every year my bone density has improved.

Comment:
I have just received my 7th injection of Prolia and I am so glad to say that I have had no problems during the 3 1/2 years. I was so very glad to not have to take oral medication such as Fosamax. I am so sorry to the people posting that have had negative reactions. My bone density tests have all been very positive!
