Prolia

I have a small amount of osteoporosis in one hip. I elected to take Prolia, which is a shot given twice a year. I thought it would be easier than weekly pills.

After having my first shot yesterday, I am not sure this is the right treatment for me.

Anyone else have experience with this?

I chose to go the no-meds route, but I know others who have gone on Prolia and are OK with it.
I like the Better Bones blog by Dr. Susan Brown for up-to-date information, exercise and nutrition. I have learned a lot from her blog. https://www.betterbones.com/

I, too, have it in one hip (barely.) I decided on the once weekly generic Fosamax pill. I know all about the possible side effects, but for me, it hasnít been too bad at all. I already had some issues with reflux before I started it, so am taking Zantac daily anyway. After one year, my Dexa showed some improvement, so Iím continuing the Fosamax and will see next year if I show continued improvement.
