There is no "safe" drug out there that does not have the potential of negative side effects including Prolia. Before my endo placed me on this drug I did some extensive research and found Prolia to be one of the better drugs. Forteo is also good but it requires one to give a self administered injection daily which I understand is no big deal. I have been on Prolia for going on two years, no side effects and my bone density has improved. My endo likes the way I am responding to the drug so I will receive my final injection in about six months. Everyone responds to drugs differently but I think you would be wise to consider Prolia as a good choice should you go this way.
Having the Prolia injection just one time 2 years ago was the worst mistake that I ever made medically, especially since the drug had not been out long and not tested that long. I got intense jaw pain and my face felt on fire. Ever since I have had inflamed skin and bone pain which hurts even to sit on soft chairs. Others have ended up in the hospital, which I would have far more wanted than continuing problems. But everyone is different. Good luck.
