Posted on Wed, 13 May 2015 in Elderly Problems
Question: My doctor is considering putting me on Prolia. I have been on once a year injections of Reclast for 6 years. Dr. was very pleased with my recent bone density results, and feels that it is time to change to a different treatment. I am very concerned about the side effects. I am 77 year old female, and looking at the side effects of this drug has me worried.
Thanks,
Ms. XXXXXXX
