Took my 1st 150 mg oral dose 3 weeks ago. Doctor prescribed generic Ibandronate Sodium. Experienced SEVERE bone pain all over, especially in my back. Pain comes for 2 days, hits hard and goes away. Three weeks later & the pain is back. Won't take anymore after reading reviews & talking to my doctor.
