Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Prolia is a medicine used to treat osteoporosis especially, on postmenopausal women.
Since you are taking this drug I presume that you have osteoporosis. Usually, the treatment is long and the improvement is gradual and not quick. Once a year you can do the DEXA (osteodensitometry) to see the effect of drop and to stop it.

As all the drugs have side effects like dizziness, nausea, osteonecrosis (bone loss) of the jaw, etc.

I suggest you to continue the treatment and do not interrupt it. You may be at risk of fracture. Consult your orthopedist and discuss the side effects if you have any and pros and cons of it. The worst thing you can do is to stop the treatment and start holistic and not evidence proved medication.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
