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.

I am a 54 yr old female. Took Boniva for 11 months. There is not one part of my body that was adversely affected. I feel as though I been swallowing poison every month. I was in fact! I have been off almost 2 mths; Still no improvement. Please warn everyone you know about this drug.The benefits,if any, are certainly not worth the pain and agony this drug will put you through.

I have been taking Boniva 150 mg for over 1 year. Each month I continue to have bone/joint pain. Most recently I experienced severe hand and finger, foot and toe pain. The pain in my fingers is so severe that the joints appear to be swollen. Really want to stop this drug and take my chances with broken bones.... I can truly say that all the pain, reflux and indigestion is really not worth the bene ... Show Full Comment
