BONEFOS (CLODRONATE DISODIUM)

Bonefos Description

Bonefos is a bisphosphonate drug that may be prescribed to lower high blood calcium levels, to help strengthen weakened areas of bone, or to decrease bone pain caused by cancers that have spread to your bones.

High blood calcium is known as hypercalcemia and can be caused by cancer that increases the breakdown of old bone, leading to more calcium circulating in your bloodstream. The weakened areas of bone called osteolytic lesions can also cause a rise in blood calcium from the spread of breast or lung cancer to your bones.

Multiple myeloma is cancer of your plasma cells in bone marrow that is possibly due to genetic abnormalities or exposures to something in your environment. Bonefos or generic Clodronate Disodium is not a cure for cancer, but it can help to reduce bone loss and your risk of fractures, as well as lower calcium levels. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Bone Remodeling and How Bonefos Works

Your bones are living tissue with a natural rhythm to breakdown (reabsorb) the old bone by bone cells called osteoclasts. While this occurs, other bone cells called osteoblasts are busy building new bone. This well controlled process is known as remodeling. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of your plasma cells, better known as bone marrow that causes them to multiply abnormally. This changes the rhythm of bone remodeling which results in old bone being broken down faster than new bone can replace it. Bonefos will slow down the activity of the osteoclasts in order to reduce old bone being reabsorbed faster than new bone is replacing it.

Conditions Treated by Bonefos

Hypercalcemia is a common complication of cancer in adults that can be life-threatening. Multiple myeloma, breast cancer, and lung cancer can cause hypercalcemia. You could experience symptoms of nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, and fatigue that can worsen as calcium levels in your blood continue to rise. Once hypercalcemia has been detected, you will most likely begin treatment in hospital where you will be given intravenous fluids followed by a diuretic that increases your urine output to help stop your body from reabsorbing the excess calcium back into your bloodstream. You may then be sent home with a prescription for Bonefos to take by mouth as instructed.

Before You Take Bonefos

Be sure you inform your doctor before taking Bonefos if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding as it may be harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Inform your doctor of other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Bonefos is safe for you to take.

Bonefos Precautions and Proper Use

Take Bonefos at least two hours before or after eating or taking other medication. Certain drugs or food, and especially milk, can impede the absorption of Bonefos. Ask your doctor how much fluid you should be drinking because this will help to protect your kidneys. Do not start, stop, or change your medication and dosages without consulting with your doctor first.
