Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take Prolia?

Prolia is administered as a single injection under the skin every 6 months. The injection can be in your upper arm, upper thigh or abdomen. It can be given by a health professional or trained injector at any time of day, with or without food.

How do I remember to take Prolia?

One way is to sign up for the ProVital Support Program. Then you will receive a call to remind you to make an appointment with your doctor (and refill your prescription), so you won’t forget. You can also ask your doctor or nurse for the reminder card with calendar stickers that come inside the box of Prolia.

Now that I’m taking Prolia, do I still need calcium and vitamin D?

Calcium and vitamin D are essential to bone health. Since different people have different nutritional needs, talk to your doctor about how much calcium and vitamin D you need.

I’m taking some medications already. Should I worry?

Tell your doctor or pharmacist about all the medicines you take, including prescription and nonprescription drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements, and keep an up-to-date list of all of them.
