Overdosage with intravenous bisphosphonates, including Boniva, may result in hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, and hypomagnesemia. Clinically relevant reductions in serum levels of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium should be corrected by intravenous administration of specific substances.

Boniva is contraindicated in patients with hypocalcemia and those with known hypersensitivity to Boniva Injection or any of its excipients. Cases of anaphylaxis, including fatal events, have been reported.

Boniva Injection must be administered intravenously only by a healthcare provider. Care must be taken not to administer intra-arterially or paravenously as this could lead to tissue damage. Appropriate medical support and monitoring measures should be readily available when Boniva Injection is administered.

If anaphylactic or other severe hypersensitivity/allergic reactions occur, immediate discontinuation of the injection and initiation of appropriate treatment is necessary.

Boniva Injection may interact with other medications. Discuss all current medications with your healthcare provider before starting treatment.

Boniva Injection may cause a decrease in serum calcium values. Treatment of hypocalcemia, hypovitaminosis D, and other disturbances of bone and mineral metabolism should be addressed before starting Boniva Injection therapy.

Adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D is important in all patients. Patients should receive supplemental calcium and vitamin D if dietary intake is inadequate.

Consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice and guidance regarding the use of Boniva Injection. If you have specific concerns about the warnings and precautions or need further information, seek professional medical advice.
