Applies to:Calcium 600 D (calcium/vitamin d) and Boniva (ibandronate)
Ibandronate and calcium carbonate should not be taken orally at the same time. Products that contain magnesium, aluminum, calcium, iron, and/or other minerals may interfere with the absorption of ibandronate and reduce its effectiveness. You should take calcium carbonate at least 30 minutes after the ibandronate dose. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.

Drug and food interactions
Applies to: Boniva (ibandronate)
Food may reduce the absorption of ibandronate, which may lead to lower blood levels of the medication and possibly reduced effectiveness. You should take ibandronate first thing in the morning, at least 30 minutes before you eat or drink anything or take any other medication. Take each dose with a full glass (6 to 8 ounces) of water, and use only plain water (not mineral or vitamin water). Do not take ibandronate if you cannot sit upright or stand for at least 30 minutes. Because ibandronate can cause irritation and ulcer in the stomach or esophagus (the tube that connects your mouth and stomach), you will need to stay upright for at least 30 minutes after taking this medication. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions on how to take this or other medications you are prescribed. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.
