Hello and welcome to HealingWell and the GERD/Heartburn forum.

Boniva is an oral drug that is used for treating osteoporosis. As one of the "bone building" drugs that are supposed to "reverse the effects of osteoporosis", Boniva can cause serious heartburn. This should be reported to your doctor immediately.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. It seems like so many medications have nasty side effects however each person reacts differently to the medications.

Do keep talking with us.

I agree with Kitt. You should see your doctor because he should be able to help you to control your Gerd.
