Has Anyone Been On Prolia For More Than A Year And Had Increase Bone Density Results Without Any Side Effects?

Has Anyone Been On Prolia For More Than A Year And Had Increase Bone Density Results Without Any Side Effects?

Per my PCP's advise I took Actonel for my severe osteoporosis. After 10 mos. I stopped taking it because of the horrible side effects (fever, nausea, digestive issues, hair loss). He is now pushing me to take Prolia and I really want to try a natural route (without side effects) for a year until my next bone density test. Thinking of AlgaeCal Plus/Strontium Boost. Any opinions?

Hello ladies I have been on prolia for 1 year no side effects. Actually my last bone density was better I had a hard time believing it. But within that year I have done a lot of weight bearing exercises I think that’s the key

I had my Bone scan last week & my bones have not deteriated in the three years of being on Prolia which is very pleasing it's taken the worry away thinking my bones are getting worse.
I keep active & try & eat well also get at least 8 hours sleep at night if possible.

Cheers Victoria xx

Hello everyone! My osteoporosis was reversed by Prolia some 5 years ago, now my doctor is considering taking me off it completely. I would love to be drug free however am very concerned my T numbers will fall. Also conceerned about side effects I have read about when it is stopped. Anyone been on Prolia and stopped it without supplemental meds? Or with what sepplemental med? What were your short and long term effects from doing so? I have been on site for years and have never seen this discussed (only see side effects some folks have and fear of negative results if they stop it). Thanks!

Prolia works for me. First increase in bone density in two years. Oral meds had no effect whatsoever.
