Uses of the Prolia 60mg Injection

If you are a woman who has gone through menopause (postmenopausal) or a man with an increased risk of fractures, it reduces the risk of fractures in different parts of your body, including the spine, hips, and other non-spinal areas.

If you’re a patient with prostate cancer experiencing bone loss due to reduced testosterone levels, either from surgery or medicine-based treatment, Prolia can be beneficial.

If you’re undergoing long-term treatment with glucocorticoids and have an increased risk of fractures, Prolia can help manage bone loss associated with this treatment.

Remember, Prolia is specifically tailored to support bone health in these situations.

How Does it Work?

Prolia works by acting as a decoy. It attaches itself to RANKL before RANKL can bind to RANK. This effectively prevents RANKL from activating osteoclasts, which are the cells responsible for breaking down bone. As a result, the ability of osteoclasts to break down bone is significantly reduced.

Consequently, the rate at which your bones break down slows down. This allows osteoblasts, which are the bone-building cells, to construct new bone more effectively. Over time, this process leads to an increase in your bone density.

How Should You Take It?

When taking Prolia, the recommended injection sites are the top of your thighs or your abdomen. If a carer is administering the injection, they can also use the outer area of your upper arm. Make sure to consult with your doctor about the date for your next potential injection. Each Prolia pack includes a reminder card, which you can remove from the carton to help keep track of your next injection date.

It’s important for you to take calcium and vitamin D supplements while undergoing treatment with Prolia. Your doctor will discuss this necessity with you. Depending on your situation, your doctor may decide that it’s best for you or a carer to administer the Prolia injections. Your doctor or healthcare provider will teach you or your carer the correct way to use Prolia. For detailed instructions on how to inject Prolia, please refer to the section at the end of the accompanying leaflet. Remember, do not shake the injection.

The recommended dose is one pre-filled syringe of 60 mg administered once every 6 months.
