WHAT IS BONVIVA?

BENEFITS OF BONVIVA TABLET
Osteoporosis is a common condition that weakens bones, making them fragile and more likely to break. It often occurs in women after menopause or who are taking steroids. This condition can be treated with bone-strengthening medicines. BONVIVA 150 MG TABLET slows down the rate at which bone is broken down in your body. This maintains bone density and reduces your risk of breaking a bone. You can also help improve the strength of your bones by doing regular exercise (especially weight-bearing exercise), eating healthy foods containing calcium and Vitamin D, and reducing your consumption of alcohol and tobacco. Supplements of calcium and Vitamin D3 are also effective.
HOW DOES BONVIVA WORK?
Osteoporosis happens when not enough new bone grows to replace the bone that is naturally broken down. Gradually, the bones become thin and fragile, and more likely to break. Osteoporosis is more common in women after the menopause, when the levels of the female hormone oestrogen fall, since oestrogen helps to keep bones healthy.
The active substance in Bonviva, ibandronic acid, is a bisphosphonate. It stops the action of the osteoclasts, the cells that are involved in breaking down the bone tissue. Blocking the action of these cells leads to less bone loss.
WHAT IS THE RISK ASSOCIATED WITH BONVIVA?
