Hi, I have been taking Boniva for 1 1/2 years. After 6 months my blood work showed elevated cholesterol. Doctor not that concerned at that point. Now one year later my cholesterol has risen even more. Now he wants to put me on meds for cholesterol. I denied. Looked up Boniva and saw that there were more people like me with this same issue. I inquired with my doc and pharmacist if there were anyway Boniva could cause elevated cholesterol and both said no. I am not feeling confident with taking this pill any longer. Curious if anyone has experienced this and quit taking if their numbers improved? Thanks!
