Has anyone taken Evenity? I understand it’s only been on the market for a little over a year. I’m hoping it will help with my severe osteoporosis. Any information is helpful.

It sounds like you have a positive experience to share.
Your mother starting taking Evenity and it appears to be working, as she fell recently and did not break bones.
May I ask if her provider ever had any insight into why Prolia shots did not work?

May I ask how the medication Evenity is going? How will you know if there are improvements?

I started Evenity in November is to soon — I have osteoporosis and three vertebras completely broken on my spine – Thank you, Erika for asking- I live in pain – I would love to go to Mayo Clinic But I can not afford it
@rita55 It can't be easy to live in pain and I hope you find relief.
Members like @arlene7 @lilypaws @nancyguy @lioness @contentandwell @sue225 @cle60 have experience with this topic and may be able to offer you suggestions and/or support.
You said that you cannot afford to go to Mayo Clinic. Does that mean you are unhappy with your current care and/or you feel you are in need of care you are currently not receiving?
@erikas @rita55 I have not been on any osteoporosis drug yet, so I can't comment on pain from them, but I have had pain from other things. Living with relentless pain can be very draining. I hope you can get some relief from one of these pain relievers. I used to get tremendous relief from ibuprofen, particularly when I took it for my bursitis, but now the only OTC I can take is acetaminophen.
Have you tried taking ibuprofen?
Thank you very much! I am 65 and started Evenity also in Nov 2020, because of my osteoporosis- I hope she keep doing well- God Bless her
have you had any bad side effects? I am due to get a shot soon for the first time.
@pattyduerkop Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, a place to give and get support.
When are you to have the shot and will you give us an update after?
tomorrow. I was hoping someone would have already responded as to whether they had any side effects. I am a bit nervous
@pattyduerkop I haven't had Evenity but so far had 1 infusion of Reclast along with this I also am on calcium VitD3Boron Vit K it's been about 6 months and my hip doesn't hurt or feel weak like before I get my next infusion in Sept then a Dexascan Good luck with yours hope it helps
I have had 9 shots with no side effect other than slight discomfort on injection sight for about a day. My shots are on the back of each of my arms. Also, please review previous replies. Good Luck and keep us posted.
Hi! My doctor has prescribed Evenity for my osteoporosis. I’m extremely afraid of the major cardiovascular side effects. Does anyone know how long these major side effects last (i.e. most at risk for 3 days after injection)? Also, why does this medication cause those particular side effects when other osteoporosis medications do not? I’m expecting to get a call soon to set up my first shot so any information would be greatly appreciated.
