    I have osteoporosis and just finished 2 years of Forteo shots. I chose the infusion instead of Prolia. The infusion procedure was painless. I made sure to be very hydrated and the infusion was done over 30 minutes, instead of 15 minutes. It's only day two so I can't attest to the effectiveness, but I feel almost normal. No adverse side effects other than some mild arthralgias in my wri ... Show Full Comment

    This has been a nightmare for me personally. I had the infusion two weeks ago and within hours of the infusion, I began to experience flu like symptoms, which I had expected. What I did not expect was for the pain to be so severe two weeks later. Severe bone and muscle pain and fevers. I am distraught that this medication is in my body now and there is nothing I can do to get better, other tha ... Show Full Comment
