California Prolia Injury Attorneys for the LGBT Community
Prolia, a drug containing denosumab, is used to treat osteoporosis specifically in postmenopausal women. The drug helps those who are at an increased risk of bone fracture by increasing his or her bone density. It is injected under the skin of your stomach, upper thigh, or upper arm twice a year. While being the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis, it has been known to cause abnormal fractures of the femur bone. These fractures happen unexpectedly following minimal or no impact to the thigh area and occur as commonly as in 1 out of every 10,000 people using the drug.
Before 2012, manufacturers failed to warn consumers regarding the potential for these atypical femur fractures. However, starting in 2012, the label has been updated to include these potential side effects. Such side effects should not be taken lightly; they truly diminish a person’s quality of life, primarily those taking the drug to avoid bone fractures in the first place.
