Would like to know if anyone had side effects from Prolia but they went away - and how long did it take for that to happen?

There have been many posts about people suffering side effects, which in theory should wear off in a few weeks, but it hasn't worked that way for many.

Here's a link to a post with comments from several people that have been suffering problems:



Are you also suffering from problems?

Only side effects I have after 3 or 4 injections so far is my jaw pain, but it went away soon and my muscles ache quite severely to different parts of the body. Still after all the shots. Feels like severe arthritis here and there.

The side effects of bone, muscle and floating body pain were severe for 2 months and continued with less pain for over 4 months. The itching and rash continued for over a month and was treated with prednisone. The dizziness and lack of balance lasted for over two months. The nausea lasted over a month. The overall side effects continued for 6 months. My immune system was weakened and the results of this continued for the last 10 months. I came down with Epstein Barr virus, have had strept three times and pick up whatever goes around easily. My cholesterol is still very high. My reactions lasted over 11 months. My health is very poor, and I continue to struggle to regain it.

One of my biggest worries is the jaw/gum problems. I have two friends, one in Cslifornia and another one in Florida that have lost thir teeth and both needed implants and dentures. This threat along with the horrible pain and discomfort produces in me panic. I am 69 and I have decided to be exposed to the minimum of medicines possible.

Had my Prolia shot in early Feb 2014 now Mar 25 after a scan showed extreme bone loss. I have been experiencing major pain issues. Within a week I had stabbing pain in right shoulder blade, left leg and foot swollen and reallly red and for the past week I have had jaw pain on the left top which radiates up to my eye and down my neck into my shoulder. The injection site was in my left upper arm. I also have Lyme Disease so it is hard to tell which symptoms belong to which problem at this point. I just know that since the injection I have been in extreme pain and popping T3 with codeine without much relief. Is there any way to flush the Prolia through my system quickly and get back to just trying not to fall down?

My mom was extremely sick after getting her second injection of Prolia. She could not lift her hands up to get dressed in the morning. She could not zip up her pants after using the bathroom. All her joints and muscles ached. She had severe jaw pain and had trouble eating and sleeping. She was completely disabled for one year. We even filed a complaint with the FDA telling them to take this drug off the market. My mother's oncologist from the Mayo Clinic suggested that she take acupuncture. My mom received 10 acupuncture sessions and has been cured of her joint/muscle pain. The acupuncture therapist made it a point to work on her muscles and joints. She has regained her strength and energy and is back to feeling well again. She refused to get a third injection of Prolia. This drug has some very nasty side effects and should be taken off the market. Do your research and look for other alternatives but don't get a Prolia injection. For those suffering, we recommend you take acupuncture and maybe you will be healed like my mother was. Blessings to all of you!

First (and only) injection 6 months ago...ongoing side effects, but perhaps beginning to lessen the last week or so. Time will tell.

I have suffered from hives, light flashing in my eyes and ovarian cancer. Prolia should be taken off the market. I am under going chemo right now. I know Prolia is responsible because all of this happened after the shot.

Poodle Says:

The FDA wrote me that in the test subjects of Prolia, side effects started to go away in as little as 10 days and lessens as time goes on so that at 2-1/2 months we should be symptom free. That does not seem true from what I'm reading here. I wonder, how much money AMGEN paid them to release this poison.

I am sorry to read all the side effects. I really believe it caused my ovarian cancer. All my troubles started after the first shot.

Oh my Goodness. What have they done to me. Still at 11 months and immune system is not back yet??? I personally believe Prolia to be worse than death itself because it sure makes us feel like we are or wannabe. I'm in tears reading your post.

Poodle Says:

Of course Prolia causes cancer because it weakens your immune system which fight the cancer cells. We have cancer cells in us all the time. It is the job of our immune system to kill them. When Prolia diminishes this response, yes, you can get cancer very, very easily. I don't want it again!! Once in a lifetime of that is certainly more than sufficient. Hopefully, you will find an excellent oncologist.

I have been on Prolia for two years and recently I have been suffering from shortness of breath and tightness in my chest. Has anyone else been suffering of any respiratory symptoms....

FDA writes half life of Prolia is 26 days. It continues to linger in the human body for 11 months. I don't know if they followed up after 11 months or just quit keeping track of subjects. I am now in the care of a Cardiologist. Thanks Prolia!!

Poodle Says:

Short answer: NO! Prolia can stay in a human body in trace amounts forever. There is no end to a half life. It goes on to infinity. There is nothing known that will delete Prolia from the human body. FACT: Straight from AMGEN.
