Please be careful! I can only share my own terrible experience. I'd been on Prolia several years and because of a change of doctors (one retired) my shot was a few weeks late. During that time three vertebrae broke leaving me in constant pain and unable to resume many normal activities, travel, etc. But because I am ON Prolia I have macular degeneration in BOTH eyes requiring treatment by a retinal specialist – which includes periodic shots IN the eye! I wish that I had never gone near Prolia!

I took it three times and after the third, I felt like a had a terrible case of the flu which lasted. Aches, pains, upper respiratory. Saw no difference in dexascan so stopped taking it. Have a friend who took 8 and got hives after the last and that ended her journey with prolia. I try to walk and work on balance but I know there is risk of the F word for all of us over 60 (F word meaning Fall). I guess the ALF has rules which precludes staff but you would think that a call to the woman's insurance company, Like Blues on Call that Highmark offers, would be able to help with a solution. I find Highmark customer reps to be exceptionally patient and helpful.
