Well, I have had 2 prolia shots now, no s iou see effects. In fact, I don't think It's doing anything for me. I got tangled up with a little dog and his chain, fell hitting the sidewalk. I hit my elbow and crushed it, needing a new artificial implant 6 screws and a plate and broke my tibia in three places. I have been in a rehab since the Monday before Thanksgiving. I will be here until the end of February. My point is, I don't think it did a thing for me and it could have actually made things worse delaying healing time. I was all for this shot, now I won't be getting it again, my whole right side is broke and my doctor says my bones are as thin as a 6 year old. It's worthless.

I had my first shot of Prolia 6 months ago and am due for my 2nd next week. I will not be going for that shot. I have had Pain and burning in my legs and have been to every doctor to find out what is going on. I now know it is from the Prolia. Also pain in both arms, tingling in my legs arms and face. and last frequent urination which has turned into bladder leakage. I will take my chances and not have another shot and hopefully return to normal.

Sir , I had lower back pain and explosive diarrhea before injection . It turned out to be Cauda Equina , a rare disease . Because I waited so long to see doc for it I made things worse for myself . Please be sure her family doc is aware of this , may not be prolia related . Its been 15 months now since my last injection and finally feel like myself again. Prayers for your wife !!!

I have been diagnosed officially with ONJ - Drug Induced. And my doctors are reporting it to the FDA. I think this is the first step.

As far as I'm concerned, the doctors must get paid from the drug reps in some way, to prescribe the drugs and then the doctors out right lie that this drug is NOT the cause of all the side effects that a person has when they're confronted. The doctors around here in the hospital don't know a thing about Prolia and they don't call the family doctor that prescribed the drug to discuss it. Sure wish someone would file a lawsuit. Prolia almost killed my dad. The doctors, the drug reps and the distributor of Prolia, who is Amgen< all need to be sued. And the FDA doesn't fall far behind them.

My wife began taking by injection Prolia Dec. 5, 2014. Doctor gave us a sales pitch promoting Prolia and it's wonderful benefits. We asked him what the side effects might be. He said that the only thing my wife might experience would be discomfort-swelling-rash at the site of inj. He completely down-played any other side effects (did not tell us of any other side effects).

My wife is experiencing a great deal of pain in the sides of her legs, hips and across her mid-lower back. She is also, experiencing terrible explosive diarrhea. She now has headaches at least twice a week. She is now experiencing a bone grating sound in her jaw.
We just recently went online to see what the side effects were---we were shocked beyond words. Among all the possible side effects this drug has, it also, is listed as a cancer therapy drug. One source stated that person should not be vaccinated while on this drug---the drug effects the immune system.

I am actually afraid for my wife's health right now. I simply do not know how all this is going to turn out.

Perhaps it's time to leave email's with the National Osteoporosis Foundation? It couldn't hurt to let them know your Prolia experience.

One injection of Prolia. After six months on Prolia Bone density increased, spine 9.9% hips 6.0%. Normally, Prolia three year average bone density increase spine 8.8% and hips 6.4%. (Did you get it ? Re-read the increase in bone density)Seems to make sense all the side effects and pain I have suffering over the last 16 months. Scary thing is Amgen did no long terms follow up. They can't tell me what will happen to my bones now that they have had this tremendous growth. Patients are supposed to get a bone scan 18 months to 2 yrs after receiving Prolia. I am glad I asked for one after 6 months. Now wonder my spine, elbows and knees were burning. I literally felt like I was growing a new spine. I guess I was, UGH! This is way to Sci -Fi and extremely frightening. Tell all your friends, non (Prolia related) doctors and relatives about this drug and the side effects you have suffered. You will be surprised how many doctors have had patients complain about the side effects.

This time last year after getting my shot in Oct I was near death . My lung doc was able to get me straightened out . I had one year follow up yesterday and told him it was amazing how much better I felt and not once case of bronchitis this year being put on oxyagen .When I mentioned to Doc I thought it was no doubt all brought on by shot of Prolia , he totally agreed and said NO DOUBT about it . These docs giving shots know the chances they are taking with us and NEVER again will I be quinea pig for anyone !

I have had my second shot of prolia the begining of Nov. and now I have itchy spots on the left side of my back and itchy blotches on my left breast. My hot flashes are worse and sometimes my heart races. My first shot was fine, no side effects. i don't kno if I want to continue them. I'm hoping the side effcts don't last too long.

I was given prolia because I only have one kidney and could not take other meds for osteoporsis . When I first saw Rheumo doc I mentioned concerns about this and supposidly she spoke to kidney doc and she approved . Last week I saw kidney doc and told her how terrible it had been and she told me people had to go on diaylis because Prolia caused kidney shut down . I now know Rheumo doc never talked to her , she would not have approved it for me .

DP girl: Sent a four page letter to FDA last May. Just sent another four page letter to FDA on updates. I have contacted Amgen several times. It seems to be a theme here that the doctors have no clue and continue to say, "This can't be caused by Prolia.". Amgen does not respond to request for help or call back. As the Amgen Health rep told me "We did no long term follow up". Amgen and their sales reps did not convey the proper procedure for health care workers to follow through on adverse side effects when their patients are in trouble. All I heard from my doctors was " Prolia has little to no side effects. If you do experience a side effect they will be at a minimum." No one ever advised me that not only can I get several side effects be they can be severe lasting over a year (plus). I reported this experienced to the FDA in my last correspondence. I hope others who have experienced the same misleading / lack of information, being left on your own to deal with the pain, suffering, medical bills, and stress, also contact and report to the FDA. I can only hope that if enough of us report the FDA will review this drug.

Thank you for your response. I wish you the best and hope you are on the road to recovery.

Have you reported your issues? Might have to get lawyers
involved. Of course, hard to get a Dr. to admit that it is/was the problem.
They told me I was having a stroke! Not!

True, the jaw pain is typical. I had it and eventually it turned into ONJ. I don't know about your case, but any use of Fosamax, Reclast and Prolia are very detrimental to the health.
I wish God's blessings. Avoid these medications at all cost if possible.

My oncologist prescribed Prolia and told me to watch for side effects. I had the shot on Dec. 31st 2013 and didn't seem to have any side effects. But by July when I was due again my jaw hurt. It didn't hurt bad and I still don't know if it was from the Prolia, but I suspect it was. I would never take another shot of it nor would I recommend it to anyone else. I saw my dentist in August and he didn't see any connection to the drug?? he recommended I use hot and cold packs and if it doesn't stop the pain he would have me wear something in my mouth at night and see if that helps. I've not contacted him again, I'm just hoping it goes away.
