I took Boniva and had some flu symptoms, runny nose, nausea, and painful joints. They were bothersome but I thought they would go away over time. I took Boniva the second month and the symptoms were worse. My lips were tingly and my sinuses were extremely bad. I had much mucus and was sneezing 8 and nine times in a row over a period of 4 days. My left eye started swelling and my face was itching. Could Boniva cause this? I am no longer taking it. Thank you.
