I had my first injection 3 months ago. I have had no side effects. I have no had another bone study so I honestly do not know ow effective this drug is. I know that the bisphosphonates turned me into a wreck! So far, I am a fan!

I too was on Fosamax (Alendronate) five years with miniscule increase in T score. Had my first Prolia injection and absolutely no adverse reaction. The shot was painless. Cannot wait to see what results will be at next screening. Once a week vs once every six months..... no brainer

I am having my 2nd injection of Prolia and have not had any side effects from the injection - so easy! I am one of the lucky ones as I was also aprehensive after reading some of the posts on here. I am beginning to think that some of the reactions that others may be experiencing may have occured regardless of the Prolia injection and may not even be connected to the injection.I attended a seminar on osteoporosis recently and after reviewing all of the medications (by pharmacists), Prolia was touted as the drug with the least side effects.They had it classified as almost the same as the placebo. The clinic that I attend are doing a number of injections with no adverse effects.

I had my first injection of Prolia 3 weeks ago and so far so good...have not had any reaction whatsoever since the injection. The injection was painless. I took Fosamax for years and it did nothing for me.

Had my 2nd injection last week. No issues. Looking forward to my DXA scan next month. I was so nervous with the IV so its a relief to get a shot.

I have now been diagnosed with adhesive capsulities (frozen shoulder) for both shoulders. The only thing I have done differently was taken a Prolia shot January 2012. I highly caution others before using this drug.
