DO not listen to the other posters here who are most likely making stuff up trying to scare you. My sister is a physician and she went over all the side effects with me. The only real concern is a rash since Prolia does NOT go through the kidney or liver like all the other drugs. This is by FAR the SAFEST osteoporosis medicine. And its the easiest too.

Pain worse than I've ever had, skin aged and leathery, constipation and can't breathe. I'm in worse shape now than before I had prolia--will NOT take any more. Stomach and digestion problems all the time, can't sleep. 6 months of hell for me. Cholesterol went way up. RA got worse--Dr. said it would help it--a lie! Dr. treated me as a guinea pig--used a sample she had in office--did NOT charge...

I'm 69 and I started getting Prolia after a diagnosis of severe osteoporosis of the spine 5 years ago. I haven't had any side effects that I can recall and now my spine has filled in. It's worked for me.

This is a bad drug. It made me sick for 7+months. Leg pains, headaches, broken teeth, flu like symptoms that last weeks at a time.

After intial dose, fatigue increased, nauseated, major flatuence and now a purple hue all over my stomach some 5 months later. Trying to check into doing pellet injections instead which are all natural as I have heard to many things about this drug including dental issues.

I took my first shot about 2 weeks ago. Immediately woke up every hour that night with severe leg cramps.. That lasted for 4 days. I had severe hip pain (where my osteoporosis is bad. I also ended up calling 911 when my blood pressure dropped down so low. I was dizzy for the whole week. It has since all worked itself out except for my blood pressure. Still havenâ??t got that back to normal. Iâ??m not sure if I will be doing this again. Not sure if itâ??s worth it.
