  • Severe heartburn or heartburn that does not go away
  • Severe bone, muscle, or joint pain

Side Effects of Ibandronate: Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects of ibandronate listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.

While it may not be a side effect of ibandronate, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
