I have had two Prolia injections and was due for the third on June 11th. I did not have this treatment because I found out how this drug works. I also suffered side effects such as very severe constipation, burning and pain in hhips and back, rashes on both arms and numerous others.

Prolia works by stopping the body's own bone remodeling process. No new bone is formed and the old bone cells stay in situ, giving an increase in bone density. This results in a higher risk of fracture due to the old denser brittle bones.

In my opinion Prolia should be further investigated or removed from the market altogether!

Doctor recommends that I get Prolia, but I am scared about the side effects. Would really appreciate information from other users.

I am allergic to boniva and other osteo meds.. so doctor talked me into a Prolia shot..said it was a wonder shot and I wouldnt have the issues I was having from the oral meds. I knew better, but i finally said ok. As luck would have it, I am one of the 9 percent who is allergic to the Prolia shot. It has been over six months since I had it and I am still suffering from eczema and hives that started a week after the shot. I have had to get different medicines to help with itching; also taking "oatmeal" baths, and buying lots of special bathing products an moisturizers. Hopefully, this leaves my body soon. Listen to yourself when in doubt about a shot.

No doubt your increase in bone mass is great, but is it as good as it seems? The bone mass increase is no doubt due to older brittle bone,which is how Prolia works - it strengthens old bone and stops the production of new bone cells.

Had my 2nd shot of Prolia 2 weeks ago. I had been light itching all over body right after shot but it gone in about 10 minutes. I have aches where I never ached before. I have stomach cramps and bloating. I had developed severe constipation and pain and burning while urinating. After two shots I have had enough and will not be having the third!

My dentist told me only way to get out of system and have dental work is to go into hyperbaric chamber ( oxygen chamber ) . Insurance does not cover and around here 90 mins is about 1200.00 . Did not explore this further because of cost , but sounds as though there is connection to lung issues suffered by myself and others .If you have the money and really need help there may be a way . Not sure who you would speak to. Our area does have them but cannot afford it .

Had my 2nd shot of Prolia about 5 weeks ago. Will never have another one as I should have learned a lesson the 1st time. I have aches where I never ached before, sore mouth and tongue, severe itching at times. I feel moody and depressed, not upbeat like I've always been in the past and sometimes I feel very nervous about even the little things of everyday life. It happened more quickly after this injection. Last time it came later - about 3 months. I wish there was a way to get this out of my system. Would not advise it to anyone. I just wish I had listened to my OB-GYN about continuing on with hormone therapy which she highly recommended over Prolia. I ache from arthritis, and have some osteoporosis at age 83 and this new aching is far worse.

Prolia was only tested on approx 7,800 people for three years. Half received Prolia the other half non active ingred. in Prolia. Both group reported bone and muscle pain. Amgen did no long term follow up on side effects. The side effects don't magically go away in 6 months. It seems like we are coming up on the three year mark that this drug has been admin to the public. Also seems like people are experiencing more side effects the more they take this drug. Average bone growth in three years spine 8.8% hips 6.4% . Call Amgen health to report problems. Than report to FDA

The increase in bone density is due to an accumulation of old bone cells. You are just as likely to have a fracture on Prolia as if you did not have it. In fact, Prolia changes our body's own bone production, causing new bone to cease being made.

The side effects which are legion, coupled with the immune and bone system tampering make Prolia a very dangerous drug!

have you tried Miralax? It is the ONLY product that I have found to help and my specialist says if need be to use it 2 times a day.
Good luck to you and God Bless

weigh your options. Do you have help at home? Are you able to drive.
I read up on all of the reactions, and yes it scared the hell out of me, but I am on the high risks list for fractures and my balance is not real good.. I don't want to break a hip. So, this was shot 3, this week, and yes it does seem that the side effects seem to get stronger after each injection, BUT, I am having a marked improvement in bone density.
Do, I think it is worth it. I really don't know...
God Bless, Be Safe

Its been 7 months since my second injection . Recently had very deep bone pain in my mouth . So bad I thought all my teeth would fall out . Kept rinsing with salt water and pain has gone away and still have teeth . Teeth are in good shape for 58 yrs old , it was bone pain , terrible terrible bone pain . At times just wanted to scream ! Just another side effect of this terrible medication .

The side effects can last longer than 6 months. I am due for my third shot and am not going to have it. I have developed severe constipation, burning pain in both hips, eczema, low blood calcium. In my opinion the side effects appear to increase with each injection.

Good luck to you

I went to four doctors, Orthopedist, Gyno, Endo, and GP. GP told me not to take it. Too soon on the market. Wish I had taken my GP's advice. 10 months and still dealing with the damage to my muscles.

I discussed taking Prolia with my GP after my rheumotologist told me to take it and said "don't read the side effects in the brochure". After reading all the negative comments about this drug I was petrified to take this drug. My GP said not to take it because not enough is known about it yet. It's still a 'new' drug. He said just to take more vitamin D.

Let us hope that this vile drug is removed from the market before any other side effects become apparent. After two shots I have had enough and will not be having the third!

I am due for my third shot of Prolia and am probably not going to have it.
I have developed severe constipation, red rashes on my arms, anxiety, pain and burning while urinating, night sweats and many other unpleasant effects. I believe that this drug has a cumulative effect so that the more shots you have the more likely you are to develop side effects.

I also found out that Prolia causes the body to stop making bone, therefore causing old bone to become denser but more brittle, increasing the likelihood of a fracture!
