What If I Take an Overdose?

People who take too much Boniva may have overdose symptoms that could include:
  • Upset stomach
  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Ulcers
  • Low levels of calcium or phosphate in the blood.
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you take Boniva monthly and forget to take your dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember (in the morning), as long as it is at least one week until your next scheduled dose. Then continue with your regular schedule. However, if it is less than a week before your next tablet is due, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule.
If you take Boniva daily, just skip your missed dose. Do not take a double dose, and do not take a dose after the morning.
