took boniva 150 mg. on 6/2/08- next day had extreme muscle pain in shoulders, arms, and now it's moved to one of my legs. Frustrating because I am very active and can hardly walk now. I'll never take this drug again.

I experienced flu-like symptoms that began on the 2nd day after taking my dose. Yesterday I couldn't even get out of bed. Upper abdominal pain persists. I will never take this medication again.
