Cleveland Boniva Side Effects Attorney

Ohio Postmenopausal Osteoporosis Medication Lawsuit Attorneys

Boniva is a prescription medication approved by the FDA for manufacture and distribution in the United States by co-developers Roche and GlaxoSmithKline. Boniva is in a family of bisphosphonate drugs known as ibandronate, often prescribed to increase bone mass and reduce osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. The primary benefit of Boniva is to reduce the chance of spinal fracture.

In recent years, products like Boniva and other osteoporosis drugs in the ibandronate and risedronate families have been linked to serious side effects and medical injury. Serious potential medical problems include:

  • Sudden fractures: Bones in the thigh are particularly susceptible to sudden fractures
  • Esophagus problems: Many people taking Boniva report an increase in heartburn and other ailments typically related to stomach problems and the esophagus.
  • Severe body aches: Some of the most painful side effects affect the muscles, joints and bones throughout the body, particularly to the ribs and back.
  • Severe jaw bone problems: Osteonecrosis may develop, severely limiting the movement and strength of the jaw muscles, making it difficult or impossible to chew and swallow food. In the most severe cases death may result.
  • Reduced blood calcium: Patients with low blood calcium levels should not be prescribed Boniva, as it is known to reduce the levels of calcium, sometimes to dangerously low levels.
