Dec 20, 2018 · Prolia treatment for osteoporosis in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I recently found out that I have Osteopenia, -2.2, and my doctor had recommended Prolia. My insurance would not pay for it so she then prescribed Boniva, orally. I took one dose and the next day had the worst back pain I have ever had. I will not take it again and after reading about Prolia I don't want to take it either. I am 61 and outside of living in Nebraska where we have ice quite often, I am going to take my chances and try eating more calcium rich foods and doing some weight excercises. I used to think that if a med could fix things I should go for it but I have experienced side effects more often lately and I am done with them!.

Heard back from my doctor and she doesn't think this back pain is from the Boniva. I'm not satisfied with this answer. She isn't from Mayo by the way.

I've recently been diagnosed with Osteopenia and Osteoporosis runs in my family. My mother, age 82, takes a prolia shot 2 times per year. I am 61 and my insurance won't pay for that so my doc recommended Boniva. I took my first dose yesterday and got along pretty well, mild heartburn most of the day, but this morning woke up with back pain and chest pain. I'm breathing fine so I'm not concerned about that but am uncomfortable and wonder if anyone else has experienced this. How long does this last? I've contacted my doc so I'm waiting to hear back from them.
