Buy Boniva brand or generic Ibandronate prescription drug from Canada
Why is Boniva prescribed?
Ibandronate sodium (Boniva) is prescribed for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in women going through menopause. It can lessen your risk of having fractures or broken bones.
What does it do?
Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones in your body become weak and prone to fractures, which usually occurs at your wrist, spine, or hip. During menopause, bone resorption (a process in the body where the bone tissue is broken down to maintain calcium levels in the blood) is faster than bone formation, causing bones to become weaker.
Ibandronate belongs to a drug class called bisphosphonates and it works by altering the breakdown and formation process of bones in the body. This may result in stronger bones and a lesser chance of experiencing fractures.
How should I take it?
Boniva and its generic equivalents are currently available in 150mg tablets. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth without food. Take it only with 6 to 8 ounces of plain water. Wait for an hour before eating or drinking anything (including medications) and do not lie down immediately after taking it.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose on your scheduled day, do not take it later in the same day. Take the missed dose the following morning and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. However, if your next dose is in less than 7 days, skip it and take your next dose according to your schedule. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Boniva?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Boniva or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Inform your doctor if you cannot sit upright or stand for at least one hour.
Taking Boniva may increase your risk of developing bone loss in your jaw. You may need to visit your dentist for an examination before starting Boniva. Ensure proper mouth hygiene at all times when taking Boniva and discuss with your doctor about any dental procedures you will undergo while taking it.
