    prolia question
    Anon_8202 posted:
    I'm getting my third prolia shot in July and will get a bone density test as well. I wonder how long we need to get these shots since I get help every 6 months then have to pay all of it because of our large deductible. If anyone can help me I would appreciate your answer. thanks

    I just stopped using Prolia and I have been getting the shots for two years. We also just figured out that it was the Prolia making me sick for the last two years. I am now looking at the Forteo injections. It seems to have several draw backs as well.

    If you could please tell me your symptons and why you quit prolia because I have had some hip pain and other side effects could it be the prolia shot? thanks your help.
