I was on Antonel 20 years ago for 3 or 4 years. There really wasn't any improvement, doctor said it is keeping you from getting worse. I was fortunate that it didn't usually bother me.

Prolia And High LDL Cholesterol

Prolia And High LDL Cholesterol

Has anyone on Prolia experienced a significant increase in their LDL numbers? I have always had high cholesterol and was unable to tolerate statins. My cholesterol numbers increased over and above what was already not good after two months on Prolia. The endocrinologist was surprised at this rapid increase and in his report to my family doctor said, "maybe it is caused by Prolia".

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?

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

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