Bone Loss

A condition that is characterized by a decrease in bone mass and density, causing bones to become fragile.

Boniva may help lower the chances of breaking bones (fractures). For Boniva to treat or prevent osteoporosis, you have to take it as prescribed. Boniva will not work if you stop taking it.
