Prolia Lawsuit

Increasing evidence suggests that side effects of the osteoporosis drug Prolia may increase the risk of hip fractures, femur fractures and other bone fractures, which typically occur following minimal or low trauma events.

PROLIA LAWSUIT STATUS: As a result of the drug maker’s failure adequately warn about this risk, the potential for Prolia fracture lawsuits are being evaluated by product liability lawyers.

MANUFACTURER: Amgen

OVERVIEW: Prolia (denosumab) was first introduced in 2010, as a treatment for osteoporosis. It was also the first drug every approved by the FDA specifically to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis. However, early on it was linked to an increased risk of bone fractures.

According to the consumer group Public Citizen, there were concerns over Prolia side effects dating back to at least 2009; a year before it was even approved to be sold.

In 2012, Health Canada and Amgen released a Prolia bone fracture warning letter, which was designed to alert Canadian users to an increased risk of atypical femur fractures that may occur with little or no trauma to the thigh bone; the thickest, largest, and purportedly strongest, bone in the human body.

Similar warnings were placed on Prolia sold in Europe. However, Amgen has decided U.S. consumers of Prolia do not warrant the same consideration or label warnings, despite the fact it is the same drug being sold in the U.S. as is being sold in Canada and Europe…just without those same warnings about the risks of bone fractures.

In 2013, the consumer watchdog Public Citizen added Prolia to its list of pills consumers should avoid, placing the drug on its “Do Not Use” list. Public Citizen noted that not only did Prolia triple the risk of hip fractures, femur fractures and other bone problems, but there were also concerns over infections and dermatologic adverse events.

In April 2019, Public Citizen petitioned the FDA to add a black box warning to Prolia over the risk of bone fractures. It is the most stringent label warning the agency can require a drug to carry.

FIND OUT IF YOU MAY QUALIFY FOR A PROLIA LAWSUIT: As a result of the drug manufacturers’ failure to adequately warn about the risk of fracture problems, Prolia lawyers are evaluating whether users may be entitled to compensation through a product liability lawsuit.

    I have had 2 injections of Prolia. The first one caused hip and leg pain but the second one not only caused the bone pain but I developed a severe throat infection with hoarseness. It has been 7 weeks since the last injection. I can’t wait until it is out of my system.

Incidently, I stopped going to my first rheumatologist because after the surgery he wanted to put me back on Prolia. I refused and started seeing another doctor. If a class action lawsuit is initiated in the U.S., I would very much like to be included.

This drug should be banned from the market. I will not take another injection, nor will I take anymore medications prescribed for bone loss. My faith, nutrition, exercise, and will power are my only medicine. Drug companies are creating too many "designer, fashionable" drugs just to make money. Television ads promoting an annual injection to control cholesterol (sounds as dangerous as Prolia), a new drug for bone loss is being advertised. It's just another Prolia with a different name. Amgen has severely harmed me.

The numerous lipomas are painful, unsightly and replicate so that I can never get ahead of the re-appearance of them. A few incisions have become inflamed due to their location and suture material. I underwent a mammogram to determine that a lump in my breast was a lipoma not a cancerous tumor. I underwent a kyphoplasty on my lumbar spine due to a fracture there. My spine surgeon was very upset with me when I refused to continue this injectable and my rheumatologist gave me Fosamax. The spine surgeon will not operate on my spine until I have completed one year of Fosamax which is very upsetting. Alterations in the color and texture of the skin on my limbs make them susceptible to injury and bruises. I feel like I have lost 10 years of my life and become elderly overnight due to this drug.

You can get 2nd opinion or change Drs,you get2 or3 estimates from companies before work done on home repairs,your body is more precious .There ARE good physicians out there who won't pressure you to do something not comfortable with & take time to talk with you. Bottom line It's YOUR decision & YOUR body not theirs.

I had an allergic reaction, drove to the local ER, had epinephrine and a relaxant, and was home later. Two weeks later I felt better. Now it's August 2022, the drug has worn off, and I have severe hip pain and exhaustion. I already had lower back pain but the pain is souch worse. I've also had right hip screws from a previous fractured, and once again, the pain is worse. But for me, since I always deal with pain, the primary concern is unusual exhaustion.

I immediately went to a doctor to ask to stop taking this disgusting poison and I was sent for an immediate bone density scan which I won't have the results for, for a couple of days. I've been told stopping the drug will cause even more bone's to break and may stop me walking. What the hell!!!! Why is this drug even on the market. I'm soooooo upset!

Prior to Prolia I did yoga daily but slowly I could do less and less if it until I could not get down on the floor to do it. It has wrecked my life and continue to struggle even after being off Prolia for 2 years. My health is improving slowly and hope it continues

And was never given the name of the drug, he stayed I only needed it once a year.Trusting my doctor I had the injection the next day I was extremely I'll I thought I had the flu I couldn't breath and my primary doctor sent me to an allergist after many tests they put me on steroid inhalers but couldn't see anything from the test that would cause all the systems I was having. Since then I still can't hardly breathe and the pain that started in my injected left arm won't go away. I can't use that arm at all. When I told the doctor who prescribedthe injection about all the side effects shortly after the treatment he laughed at me out loud. I was shocked that a doctor would do that . He said he never heard of anyone having so many side effects. As months passed on I saw my primary doctor again and told her of the trouble breathing but the pain in my arm and shoulder was worsening and I didn't go back to do the six month follow up injection because I didn't it took all that time to even find out what I had been injected with when his office called me to schedule a six month injection I said I was told the drug was every six months. And when I asked for the name of that drug only then was I told it was prolia. As of July I have appointments to change all of my doctor's.hopeing they can help me get better and go over my case and help me stop suffering

This drug has destroyed my life, have to use a cane and hold onto someone to walk, unable to do small tasks around the house,unable to stand more than 5-8 minutes back hurts so bad. This drug NEVER leaves your body, Might as well be DEAD. I cannot believe this drug Is on the open market, it should never be given to another person. I had good health untilI took this 1 shot Dr that gave it to me was no help at all, when I went back her comment was Breast not that much bigger. When I called to see her again,she had CLOSED her practice in late 2018 without notice to patients

After my doctor wanted to give me a break from taking it for 5 years, after 8 months I wound up in the hospital four times with three fractures. Had a kyphoplasty for my compression fracture which was the most painful thing anyone can experience. Two years later I am still in pain after going to numerous doctors and not getting any relief. This drug is a nightmare and should be taken off the market. The drug company should be held liable for all the pain and suffering. Do not take this drug period. I know this drug has shortened my lifespan and the quality of my life will never be the same .

Not realizing it was the side effect of Prolia. Did not see a doctor due to being the height of the pandemic. On May 29th, 2020 while strolling at my neighborhood park, a small child on a bike hit me from the backside. It was a low impact accident, but my left femur was fractured. An ambulance took me to the hospital for emergency surgery. The surgeon said it was an atypical fracture on my femur. Result of my Prolia injections for 6 years. Now I have an implant in my left femur and a drastic change in my lifestyle. I no longer practice yoga or hiking. Walking up the stair is a challenge. I feel depressed all the time. This drug should have never been approved by the FDA.

Ironically enough, I started my treatment for osteoporosis with Reclast drip in late 2013. . My yearly DEXA scan showed a slow but steady improvement over the next five years. In 2015, we moved to Florida and our new primary care physician continued to prescribe Reclast drip. Again the DEXA scans continued to show improvement at a steady pace. In late 2018 our doctor changes my treatment from Reclast to Prolia. I asked why the change and he answered that Prolia is taken from a part of the pig, and it is much safer than a synthetic medication and the DEXA scan results show much better numbers than Reclast. This could not be farther from the truth. The DEXA scans showed minimal positive results but the adverse results from Prolia could not be measured in numbers. Within 1 year I started to have dental problems. It’s noteworthy to mention that my visits to the dentist before Prolia included a cleaning and X-rays that showed no cavities along with a sparkling smile. Prolia has destroyed my jawbone. My teeth are either falling out. Rotting out or breaking off in my mouth causing some teeth to be broken down to the gum. Prolia has also caused a recess in my gums that are abnormal at best. I have found a dentist who is knowledgeable in what Prolia is doing to people. He has sent my saliva to be tested to see to what degree Prolia is a factor. He knows that Prolia is the cause because my teeth were in perfect health before starting on Prolia. He also gave me a prescription for bloodwork and took a CT scan to examine my jawbone to see if I have a chance to have dental implants. It does not look promising because of the destruction that Prolia has already caused. I am left with my Faith which for me is the most important factor. What is hopeless for man is possible with God. The dentist I have now is a small miracle since 4 dentists had no idea what Prolia was let alone know that it is causing severe problems. Some dentists are aware of this but are not proceeding with a dental program that includes Prolias effect on the teeth and jawbone and in turn not looking at the other health issues that arise from a Prolia infection that causes bacterias that have caused heart attacks. Strokes and many other health issues. Our new dentist has gone so far as to say that I should make sure I wear a mask when I am with people since any saliva transferred from me to another person will likely transfer the bacteria to them. There must be something done to hold Amgen the manufacturer of Prolia liable for the suffering of so many people, who were trying to control their osteoporosis finding that osteoporosis may be the least of their problems. I pray for healing for everyone suffering as I am and I hope and pray that Prolia and its disastrous effects on the human body will be brought to the light, more than an article on a website. There is too much suffering with very little being done to put peoples minds at ease. Stay strong because every person who is suffering needs to stand up and be counted. Thank you and Godspeed!!!!

When my doctor wanted me to take it, I asked her if there were any side effects and she said not that she knew of. This was only 2 and 1/2 years ago. There were warnings out on it at that time. So upset that she had no compassion for my health.

I have been working with a pain clinic that has prescribed painkillers and gabapentin which has made a small difference. The bone health clinic where I received the injection says that they have never heard of anything like this. Judging from the comments here, I don't know why that would be. I'm wondering when this will ever go away.

Each injection is something like $1,200.00 where Medicare pays for most of it. They have millions of people on this so called "medication", so you can see right there what is the motivating factor. My father had two injections. After the second one, he could hardly breath I had to take him into the closest "Urgent Care". Within a few months all his top teeth melted away. Within 6 months his femur, the largest bone in the body, fractured from simple body weight. He slowly recovered from that but it had a lingering negative impact on his body. He was weaker, become dizzy, etc. Then he fractured his ribs when he leaned over at the sideof the bed in order to put his shoes on. The medical establishment is blinded by their own profession believing that "modern medicine" develops wonderful new treatments that help people when it's all the opposite. What they don't tell you about Prolia is that it actually, in very basic terms, stops the recalcification of the bones. Since the bones are throughout one's life continuously demineralizing and remineralizing, guess what happens when a drug interferes and effectively stops the remineralizing part. That's right, fractures. It also operates through the protein synthesis in the body, so you can only wonder what further damage occurs. So why is it even on the market. The FDA is effectively in bed with the pharmaceutical industry. You will have people who have worked at the FDA go to work for the pharmaceutical companies, so it's ripe for conflicts of interest. You might read that they have a "vigorous" approval process and it's all based on "science" and studies. Then you have to ask whose science is being used. And are studies ultimately funded by pharmaceutical companies, or universities that receive funding from the same. Something isn't right here, but how can it be addressed. The problem is that there is so much money in the pharmaceutical industry that they take any lawsuits into account and hope to rake in more money before there are any or too many lawsuits. Plus, with a drug like Prolia that is targeted to the elderly, they often don't understand what is happening to them, don't make the connection or are just too tired or in cognitive decline that prevents them from speaking up and making it an issue.

My oncologist had not given me any instructions or what to expect. When I went back for my checkup several months later all I could say was “why did you try to kill me”. He said nothing I had to go to my urologist and had surgery done to remove all the gunk from my urinary system. I am now being treated by my family physician. I am taking calcium B12 and D3 and meds for my nerves I have pain and I sleep a lot. My doctor is doing extensive blood work. I am 78 years old. I am an accountant and a Deputy Coroner. I live on faith and prayer and my trusted regular doctor. My Oncologist has not been any assistance and all he did was make me an appointment in 6 months. He is in touch with records he provided on my shot but he seemed to think it would go out of my system after 6 months it hasn’t I took shot in November 2020.

I have back pain now, but it is minor without the shot, I don't want it to increase increase my problems. Oh and by the way, he never mentioned the side effects of the Boniva either, and He has not mentioned the side effects of Prolia, only my OB has mentioned them and she told me that I could possibly have the same side effects as I had with the Boniva. So, at this point I don't know, but I know of at least 3 people who take it and they are fine, but they could not take the Fosamax or the Boniva, it made them sick. All I know is, I don't want to feel like that again.

    I had my first injection of Prolia on 4/28/21 and developed severe dermatitis/eczema skin reaction. It seems that I have a combination of both. I had no idea this would be a side effect.

I spent all weekend doing research, and read so many negative comments; however, the fact that such severe reactions are occurring immediately after the first injection and the fear of stopping... I am amazed this drug is on the market. I am hoping for the best and I have all intentions of stopping this drug. I have also been noticing much hair loss since this injection. My main concern is what do we do after we stop taking this? I read that one should promptly receive a bisphosphonate or other alternate antiresorptive therapy to mitigate the increase risk of vertebral fractures. Has anyone done this? Is there a place we can go to with more information? It appears to be dangerous to take this drug, and extremely dangerous to get off of it. I should have stayed with my instinct - not to take this medicine. My doctor talked me into it.

You never (or very rarely) see a story such as: This drug worked for me and caused me no problems. You only see all the terrible stories of how from the moment someone took the drug, their lives became an ongoing misery of pain and suffering and they were never the same again. Not that I am discounting anyone's story here (Everyone is different and sometimes bad reactions do happen) but it just seems that on every review website (no matter the drug), there is almost never a positive review of ANY drug! I have been taking Prolia for 6 years now and have had no side effects. Perhaps I am just fortunate but I do know I was trying to fight advanced osteoporosis (for decades even before being diagnosed with it) by taking extra calcium, vitamin d, exercise and all the rest, but to no avail. I never smoked and don't drink alcohol. My mother had advanced osteoporosis and apparently in my case it's genetic. You can't alter your genetics. With this in mind, I decided I needed to do something to combat osteoporosis. Sorry for all the negative things here that people list as having happened to them taking Prolia (everything from soup to nuts), but since other things did not work for me, I will stick with Prolia, at least for now. I do worry about getting my next injection with Covid raging, but it looks like Covid will continue raging for quite some time to come.

Somehow, I acquiesced when my doctor kept insisting and I am so sorry. My husband felt I should not have it, but was not with me the day i got it because of Covid restrictions. Believe me, he will be there when I go again in March to tell my doctor "no more," echoing my feelings. I need to know what best practice is to follow cessation of Prolia? No one seems to be more than vaguely recommending a bisphosphonate. I am at once anxious to avoid rebound fractures, and fearful of ANY OTHER chemical bone density-altering drug, for the same reason I am afraid of Prolia! I would like to hear if there is a class-action lawsuit as well. Sign me on!

I told my rheumatologist I did not want to do another shot but he dismissed the side effects which he never told me could happen in the first place. After the second shot, I lost my ability to walk and experienced profound issues with my jaw, teeth spontaneously coming loose, intense jaw pain, infection and gums spontaneously receding so much that the bone is exposed. My quality of life came to an abrupt end. I stopped Prolia 1.5 years ago, I am still experiencing major side effects from it and I am terrified of what’s next. I was never told of the profound side effects that could be caused by Prolia which I still experience every minute of every day.

    I had my first prolia injection six months ago. I was NOT told of the risk of spinal fractures if you go off it. I had two compression fractures from falls 12 years ago, so now I am terrified that if I go off prolia I will suffer more spinal fractures. I want to go off it because I have had increased joint pain since I started on it, but now I feel trapped.

The shin pains that keep me up all night, the jaw pain where I cant even open wide enough to eat... the flu like feeling coming and going several days a week. There was numbness in my hands and dizzy spells at home and work. Some day i would call in because i couldnt even stand up with the pain in my feet and legs. There was stabbing pain in my ribs at anytime, for no apparent reason. This is crazy. This should be taken off the market.

Sent to have EMG done both arms and hands.Right hand came back as carpal tunnel and left hand as nerve damage .couldn’t wear watch or rings or wear a long sleeve that touched my wrist. Also went to Ortho Neuro for arms, had exrays, sent for therapy.After one session ,every thing shut down ,because of virus.Couldn’t have hand operated on,but he gave me a shot in the wrist, which helped plus Gabapentin.from family doctor.I’m still having problems after almost a year.Was never told of side effects,but knew the Prolia shot is the cause of all the pain I’ve had.I was a healthy woman of 83 years old ,on record as seeing my doctor for a sinus infection once a year. I will not ever take the shot again, and believe that a shot that was supposed to help, caused me the most pain I’ve ever had in my life.I would like to be informed if there is a lawsuit in the future.

I did not have any of these issues before the Prolia. I actually felt decent for the first time since the end of Chemo then came the Prolia. I had a lung biopsy for a chronic cough (not sure if related) and was asked if I have Rheumatoid arthritis. The blood test showed Rheumatoid indications. I never had Rheumatoid indicators, not even with Chemo labs done every 3 weeks. I have taken steroids for seasonal allergies, heat rashes and then ibuprofen for this pain which helped. Now I’m having GI flare ups and was told not to take ibuprofen. I can hardly walk without pain in every joint, bone and muscle. My arms, hands, feet, shoulders, knees-all are effected. Maybe a broken bone would be less painful and would possibly heal. Not sure this will ever wear away.

Doctor gave me script for Risedronate, took 2 tablets over 2 weeks, I noticed my mouth area and lips tingling and feeling numb. I’ve not had another tablet since. 3 weeks later my mouth and cheeks lips are still numb and I’ve had an ear ache with ringing, shooting pain in arms and joint pain. The stress has caused anxiety and I’m on a down spiral, now I’m experiencing memory loss and I feel like I’ve aged about 20 years - Don’t know where to turn at this point. Tracy

    I had my first injection on 1 May 2020. I am now suffering from vertigo. Extreme tiredness. I was not told of any side effects when given the injection. Never told my immune system could be compromised. My parathyroid reading went to 20 and my calcium is decreasing. I was never told this was chemotherapy. Suffering anxiety as to the future as I have CKD and coronavirus is escalating in my state.

    I have been taking Prolia shots about 4 years now. I have suffered extreme back pains . I have been to several Othopedic Doctors and surgery is out of the question because I developed severe osteoporosis of the spine. L-2 down to S-1. Also, I have itching of the neck, ears, and scalp. Also bathroom issues. I’m afraid to stop because of the warning that the company said.

  • BethJuly 19, 2020 at 6:35 am

    I had 7 rebound vertebral fractures after discontinuing Prolia. I wasn’t warned about this possibility by my doctor or Amgen. They occurred in 2017 through 22019. They were extremely painful and debilitating. I am permanently semi disabled now as a result of these fractures.

I developed a T6 fracture in May, suffered though the recovery and now have another one. The pain is extreme. I called the doctor’s office and told the employee who seems to manage the Prolia patients about my fracture and that my PCP showed me the information about stopping the shots causing these fractures. She had no idea this could happen and even said she needed to let people know who hadn’t gone in for their shots because of Covid. I was advised that by a different doctor that I needed to go back on the shots to try to prevent the fractures, I got another shot but am very afraid of more problems! When I started the shots I was told about possible jaw problem and femur fractures, but told the chances of problems were remote, I was NEVER told that once I started these shots I could not stop! This just shouldn’t have happened.

I had open sore rash on my face sizes of dime to Nickles- I was in bathroom 24-7 , vomiting, dizzy, huge mouth sores and a large fleshy mass in roof of my mouth. Severe headache and then the COPD cough- Coughing so much my abs and chest hurt... Dry skin and eyes - nails flakes off... hideous lady parts itching... eyes felt like cotton balls, and peeing and pooping myself- gastro issues , constant UTI , severe ... lost much of my hair- bought a wig- hated wearing it... and my teeth issues- that was January 2015. I have said many times it ages me 10 years or more. And if it aged my outsides what did it do to my insides? Had to Quit my job 3 weeks later - I couldn’t manage to stop crawling and being in the bathroom until at least noon or later each day. Sobbed and cried by myself daily... - we got Coco a month later and she saved me. She got me out of bed, on afternoon walk and out socially... and kept me company. I owe her my life... Went to Mayo Clinic by myself with Mister for 9 days plus weekends ... They addressed each single medical issue and stopped the treating my body as individual pieces to a whole body allergic and flared by Prolia. My doctor here followed their protocol to this day. I had rx for all of the above and My house is still full of all the rx. I can’t get rid of them just “in case” I need them. All due to one ridiculous PROLIa shot. Triggered every single autoimmune issue in my dna to attack my body all at once. I read on my Prolia sites people who are far worse ... my hearts aches for them. And when I hear of someone’s family member I vow to share my story to not take that drug. I am a case study per Mayo Clinic for Fda and Amegen has my file as well. One day I hope to hold them accountable along with millions of other people.

Went to a dermatologist for the psoriasis on my face (now gone). And then to be told (I'm sure the drug maker purposely says this) that I can't stop taking it ever or will have spinal fractures. Drug should be taken off market and doctors should be required to warn patients of these horrible side effects that are way too common with Prolia.

After the 2nd shot I started having terrible pains in my legs and hips, feeling very frail, balance problems from weakness, blood sugar problems and sinus problems. I had been very healthy and athletic all my life. Prolia took it away and made me a weak old woman. I can lay on my side for maybe 20 minutes before the pain in my hip wakes me up every night, roll over and in a few minutes the pain starts in the other hip and keeps me awake. Sometimes the pain in my thigh stops me from walking. The real kicker is that the doctor who gave me the shots said none of her patients ever had any problems, but she has collected thousands of dollars kickback from Amgen for Prolia. (look up Dollarsfordocs). This stuff needs to be banned!

Severe hip and lumbar vertebrae pain. IGA dropped to 20. Remainder of immune system tests decimated. Prolia should be taken off market.

I have lots of crowns and upper and lower partials. I have had a infection that was spread into the jaw bone and had to have the complete upper bone scrapped, guessing that was about 10 years ago. I’m 64 yr old now. My Dr. told me to go see my dentist before going on this drug and I did, no problem. I had no ideal!!!! Yes, my teeth were in the best condition that could be for me. BUT, if someone would have just ask simple questions, I should have never been on this drug!!!! Just based on my dental background. Now I’ve had 5 root canals and waiting to have oral surgery to remove two teeth. 9 months from my last injection. All my teeth hurt and are getting loose, I’m in pain and it hurts when I eat. My jaws are starting hurt and I’m scared. My health insurance doesn’t cover any of this so I’m looking at about 20k and just getting started. My Dentist office is closed because of the virus and I’m in the middle of a lot of bad fitting temporaries. I’m scared.

I had no effect (except for teeth problems)from the first two but three days after the third shot, I experienced pain in the front of both legs (shins and thighs as well as around each kneecap). Three months later (2/19) I went back to the internist with my pain and he gave me a bone density test that showed anywhere from3%-10% improvement. But the pain continued to get stronger. By 5/19 my left hip was so painful that I could hardly walk/sleep. I was sent to a orthopedic team (back, hip,nerve) and found no reason for the pain in my legs or knees. My hip showed some deterioration but this did not bother me until the Prolia shot. I went thru six months of tests and no doctor would say that all my pain was caused by the shots. They did admit that the frontal pain from my waist down was not caused by the hip. Went back to the internist in 12/19 and he did every blood test to rule out every cause. All came back negative EXCEPT for the swollen muscle test that showed muscle inflammation, but couldn't tell me where in my body. Because of all the pain, I would not take a fourth shot. There was some relief, both in my hip and thigh, from the three cortisones shots I have taken in the last six months but didn't"t last long. I can't walk more than a mile without significant pain. I feel I have lost over a year of my life and hope the longer this shot leaves my body, the pain will subside. My internist gave me gabapentin (300mg) in my Dec visit so I can sleep at night. Prolia should be given to those individuals as was intended - bone cancer or such severe osteoporosis that bone breaks are inevitable. This is not a preventative measure for the rest of us. I was never informed that this shot had to be continually given or, if stopped, the potential risk of fracture would increase. It also raised my blood pressure and cholesterol.

I knew I had diverticulitis for years but never bothered me. I think that because this injection lowers your immune system, anything can become infected and abcessed. I needed three surgeries with the colostomy and presently will have surgery this coming Friday because I'm having problems with the colostomy site eventhogh it was reversed. After the injection I had never had an abcesded tooth and I got one that needed to be extracted. I have lost 5 years of my life. All I can say is beware!

    2 weeks after my 1st (and last) prolia injection, 2 of my teeth became so loose and sore I couldn't bite down. It's been 1 month since my injection, my right hip, knee and left thumb joints are killing me, I have head aches all the time. My back hurts so bad I cry trying to get out of bed.

I have been in bed this entire weekend due to pain and feel so bad. They told me to not have any dental work done for 3 months after my shot. That was my verbal warning. I will NEVER EVER get another 1 of these demonic shots. All the doctors office says is to take tylenol and alternate with aleve. I am allergic to tylenol and my stomach doctor says no aleve. No one warned me about all of this mess, or that it could kill me.

    My dr wanted me to start prolia TODAY! This afternoon a injection. Now I’m scared to death after researching this. It sounds like on this site and others I need to reconsider.

It sounds like on this site and others I need to reconsider. What would you say to someone who is thinking of doing it? The insurance already paid for it and it’s waiting at the dr office. I laid awake all night thinking about this. And I have a shoulder replacement in 3 WEEKS scheduled. I could be in trouble even by then bc people are saying 2 weeks after Injection the pain starts and it’s poison basically. Why isn’t it banned already ? Greed? It was $1250 an injection!

    After stopping Prolia after two injections I have had eight spontaneous rebound vertebral fractures. I have been stuck in a recliner or bed for most of two years because of these fractures which have sequential. As soon as I would feel a little better I would have another one. No warning about this from Amgen or my doctor.

  • BarbaraNovember 6, 2019 at 1:29 pm

    After the 2nd shot I began loosing my voice. Diagnosed with paralyzed vocal cord, 10 months later a egg size cancerous mass was found in my neck. My Endo/ENT & Rheumatologist denied that Prolia was responsible. Coincidence...I think NOT!!!!

  • RionOctober 26, 2019 at 11:48 am

    I have had 3 injections of prolia after #2 I was noticing some issues but had not made the connection just yet. I had some dental work done and I could barely open my mouth. What I thought was TMJ I now believe to be Osteonecrosis waiting for more testing. Ronnie please share more of your story since we seem to be experiencing the same thing.

  • GeorgeOctober 24, 2019 at 8:13 pm

    I’ve had 3 shots of this drug in the past 2 years February is supposed to be my fourth shot. Left leg femur while walking just broke in half two weeks ago. Was rushed to the hospital and had surgery to install a metal rod in it. Surgeon said it was a Prolia related fracture. When prescribed to none of these side effects were mentioned to me. If I knew I would never have agreed to it

  • GloriaOctober 23, 2019 at 2:00 am

    I benn taking these shots for 2 years but no more for me I very afraid of them. I was not warned about all these bad side effects, severe weakness fatigue back pain leg pain nor was I told that my bones could break if I stop taking it. I was a very energetic 55-year-old that now feels like I'm 85-year-old no more shots for me

  • RonnieOctober 18, 2019 at 10:34 pm

    I received 3 injections of Prolia and developed osteonecrosis of the jaw. This is extremely rare. Do not want to go into detail as to what I’ve had to endure.

In March/April 2019 a pain began in my low back. It moved into the whole of my back causing me excruciating spasms. I could hardly move. I admitted myself to hospital for pain relief. In July an MRI scan showed fractures in most of my vertabrae. I was shocked. In August I was told the reason for all the fractures was because I wasn’t taken off Prolia slowly

After not being able to have Dental work done.because of 2 Dentists refusing to take care of me because of Prolia ..I went off the drug for 4 months ..I ended up having 2 spinal fractures and 2 more a few months later . This drug is poison

  • RobertaSeptember 21, 2019 at 5:14 am

    How about death as a side effect? Yes, believe it or not, death is the number 1 of the top 10 reported side effects reported to the FDA for this crap! I will NOT be taking it!

  • AndreaSeptember 11, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    I had eight Prolia shots over a four-year period. My doctor decided to stop the injections. Eight months later (May, 2016) five of my vertebrae broke for no reason. I had to have surgery and lost a year of my life.

    I had 2 rounds of Prolia about 3 years ago. Second round put me in the hospital with pneumonia. Rash was on my cheeks, Dr. asked about it. I said I don't know, it came up after the second injection. Since then I suffer from outbreaks of cellulitis! Wish I had never heard of this drug! I have constant back pain and constant outbreaks of cellulitis on my face!

Duh the tooth had this hole for 4 years the tooth decayed to the point it needed to be pulled, couldn’t get it pulled due to a chance of necrosis of the bone from being on Prolia, they didn’t tell me I will never be able to get a tooth pulled. What happens, the remove the root, then file the tooth to the bone, the surgeon stated it was ashame that it wasn’t caught earlier, he could of done a root canal and a crown. I am so made over this whole issue, I am thinking of hiring a lawyer, but I don’t know if I have a case

  • PEGGYAugust 29, 2019 at 12:34 am

    I am at a loss to know what to do. I am 74 with osteoporosis in right femur. My doctor wants me to take Prolia. I have been reading the reviews and I am unsure about it. Is there anything else I could take for the osteoporosis, which the doctor said can get worse over time if I'm not on anything. Thanks.

Since taking Prolia, I have suffered an enormous amount of bone issues. My cervical spine has dibilitating pain from herniated discs, thoracic vertebrae, 2 & 3 are a mess after a 2003 accident. My lumbar area as well as my cervical area are in constant pain, etiology unknown. My feet have now started hurting, my right foot with a pronounced amount of abnormal bone growth on top. Most likely a bone spur. Now, the bottom line - once I took Prolia, I have issues swallowing. I have had a barium swallow which showed abnormality of flow from my esophagus to my digestive system. At times, my throat completely closes - all I can do is control my breathing through my nose, spitting as I am unable to swallow. I have been prescribed hyoscomine, which helps when things become urgent.

  • ElizabethAugust 7, 2019 at 9:08 pm

    I’ve had 8 or more spontaneous vertebral fractures since stopping Prolia two years ago. These are REBOUND FRACTURES caused by stopping Prolia This has been well documented but I wasn’t informed of this risk before stopping the Prolia. I am now disabled from all of these fractures.

  • TeriAugust 6, 2019 at 2:16 pm

    Severe joint pain, inflammation, muscle aches and snapping hip syndrome following one and only injection of Prolia. I also had 2 crowns fall off my teeth secondary to calcium /bone loss and bleeding gums.
