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.
