Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Recently began taking Prolia. First week no symptoms. Second week experienced nausea in the morning, lasting through afternoon. Began taking a natural remedy for indigestion and it does help some. I rarely experience nausea, not even during four pregnancies.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Never had pneumonia or rash until I began the prolia shots
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Lost three inches off my height in the two years I took finasteride. Only took a daily 1mg dose. I have no disk material between my L-4 - L5 and between my L5 - S1. I used to be 6'2" and now I am barely 5'11". I was conclusively 6'2" from a doctor wellness exam a little more than 2 years ago and I am having to go in to get spinal surgery within the next month because my lack of disk material is damaging my nerves that go into my legs. I go between being completely numb in my legs to being in complete pain.
