How to Start Your Patient on Prolia®

  • The recommended dose of Prolia is a single subcutaneous injection of 60 mg, once every 6 months.1
  • If a dose of Prolia is missed, the injection should be administered as soon as is convenient. Thereafter, injections should be scheduled every 6 months from the date of the last injection.1
  • Patients must be adequately supplemented with calcium and vitamin D.1
  • Prolia is a clear, colourless to slightly yellow solution that may contain trace amounts of translucent to white proteinaceous particles. Do not use if the solution is cloudy.1
  • Prior to administration, Prolia may be allowed to reach room temperature (up to 25°C) in the original container.1
  • Administer Prolia via SC injection in the upper arm, the upper thigh or the abdomen.1
  • DO NOT slide the green safety guard forward over the needle before administering the injection – it will lock in place and prevent injection.1
  • The green safety guard should be activated (slid over the needle) AFTER the injection.1
  • The grey needle cap on the single use prefilled syringe contains dry natural rubber (a derivative of latex), which should not be handled by persons sensitive to latex.1
