Prololia Side effects

Detailed Answer:
Good evening

thank you for writing on health care magic

Well, all drugs do have some or the other side effects. Prolia is a monocloncal antibody( Biological Drug) and is usually the last resort in Osteporosis especially if the fractures are happening in the spine or there are constant changes in the shape of spine despite the other treatment .

Firstly, all Biological drugs do have a side effect of increased risk of infections, more of urinary tract and upper respiratory tract. So before giving the drug we need to rule out your hepatitis and also the tests for Tuberculosis. Although Tuberculosis is not common in your country, it still is a known side effect of the drug, rather for all biological drugs.

Secondly,if you havent tried the other medicines before I would recommend you try them first and then if nothing works maybe switch to Prolia

I hope the information was useful
