How Should It Be Stored?

Your healthcare provider should store Prolia in the refrigerator, although the medication may be allowed to reach room temperature before injection (room-temperature injections are usually more comfortable than refrigerated ones). Once the medication is removed from the refrigerator, it must be used within 14 days or discarded.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Prolia as planned (every six months), contact your healthcare provider as soon as possible to schedule another dose.
 

Available Strengths

Prolia is available in one strength -- Prolia 60 mg per mL. It comes in 1-mL single-use prefilled syringes or in 1-mL single-use vials. The prefilled syringes are convenient but contain dry natural latex rubber in the syringe cap (which can be a problem for people allergic to latex).
 

Can I Buy Generic Prolia?

At this time, Prolia is not available in generic form (see Generic Prolia).
