Bonefos is used to treat hypercalcemia (high blood calcium) in people with cancer and to treat cancer that has spread to bones (bone metastases) due to different types of tumors. 

Bonefos, also known as clodronate, belongs to a family of medications known as bisphosphonates. 

Clodronate works by slowing down the breakdown of bone and lowering the amount of calcium lost from the bones. This mechanism helps in reducing the impact of bone metastases and hypercalcemia in cancer patients.


  • Take Bonefos exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. This includes the dosage (amount), frequency (how often you take it), and duration (for how long).
  • Read the Patient Information Leaflet that comes with Bonefos. This will provide important information about side effects, drug interactions, and storage instructions.
  • Take Bonefos on an empty stomach, with a full glass of water. This is usually at least two hours before a meal or any drinks except water.
  • Sit upright or stand for at least 30 minutes after taking Bonefos. Avoid lying down or reclining to prevent heartburn.
  • Maintain good dental hygiene. Bonefos can affect your jawbone, so see your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings.


  • Do not take more Bonefos than prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  • Do not take Bonefos if you are allergic to Pamidronate or any of the ingredients.
  • Do not take Bonefos with milk, dairy products, calcium supplements, or mineral supplements. These can interfere with Bonefos' absorption.
  • Do not take Bonefos with other medications without consulting your healthcare provider. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as vitamins and herbal supplements.
  • Do not crush, chew, or dissolve Bonefos tablets. Swallow them whole.

Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes and avoid eating food until after taking Bonefos.

Bonefos can decrease the absorption of other medications. Inform your healthcare provider about all medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal products. Your healthcare provider may need to adjust the timing of your medications.

Dental procedures: Inform your dentist that you are taking Bonefos before undergoing any dental procedures.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Bonefos should only be used during pregnancy if clearly necessary. Discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare provider. Bonefos may pass into breast milk, so consult your healthcare provider before breastfeeding while taking Bonefos.

Bonefos may weaken your bones with long-term use. Your healthcare provider will monitor your bone health with regular tests.
