Denosumab Drug Information

If you have osteoporosis, your healthcare provider may prescribe Denosumab (ProliaTM). This prescription medication is specifically approved for use in postmenopausal women who have a high risk for fractures and for people who have not been successful with other osteoporosis treatments.
 
Denosumab comes in the form of an injection and is administered by a healthcare provider once every six months. Back pain, high cholesterol, and pain in an arm or leg are some of the possible side effects of this product.
 
It's important to review denosumab's safety information with your healthcare provider before receiving this injection. This drug may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as any immune-suppressing condition, low blood calcium, or any allergies) or if you are taking any other types of medicine.
