Waarvoor wordt dit middel gebruikt?

1. What is and what it is used for

<Ibandronic acid 150 mg> belongs to a group of medicines calledbisphosphonates. It contains ibandronic acid. It does not contain hormones.

<Ibandronic acid 150 mg> may reverse bone loss by stopping more loss of bone and increasing bone mass in most women who take it, even though they won’t be able to see or feel a difference. <Ibandronic acid 150 mg> may help lower the chances of breaking bones (fractures). This reduction in fractures was shown for the spine but not for the hip.

<Ibandronic acid 150 mg> is prescribed to you to treat postmenopausal osteoporosis because you have an increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis is a thinning and weakening of the bones, which is common in women after the menopause. At the menopause, a woman’s ovaries stop producing the female hormone, oestrogen, which helps to keep her skeleton healthy.

The earlier a woman reaches the menopause, the greater her risk of fractures in osteoporosis. Other things that can increase the risk of fractures include:

  • not enough calcium and vitamin D in the diet
  • smoking, or drinking too much alcohol
  • not enough walking or other weight-bearing exercise
  • a family history of osteoporosis

Many people with osteoporosis have no symptoms. If you have no symptoms you may not know if you have the condition. However, osteoporosis makes you more likely to break bones if you fall or hurt yourself. A broken bone after the age of 50 may be a sign of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis can also cause back pain, height loss and a curved back.

<Ibandronic acid 150 mg> prevents loss of bone from osteoporosis, and helps to rebuild bone. Therefore <Ibandronic acid 150 mg> makes bone less likely to break.

A healthy lifestyle will also help you to get the most benefit from your treatment. This includes eating a balanced diet rich in calcium and vitamin D; walking or any other weight-bearing exercise; not smoking; and not drinking too much alcohol.

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to ibandronic acid or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
  • if you have certain problems with your oesophagus (the tube connecting your mouth with your stomach) such as narrowing or difficulty swallowing.
  • if you can’t stand or sit upright for at least one hour (60 minutes) at a time.
  • If you have, or had in the past low blood calcium. Please consult your doctor.

Take special care with <Ibandronic acid 150 mg>

  • If you have any disturbances of mineral metabolism (such as vitamin D deficiency).

    • If you are under dental treatment or will undergo dental surgery, tell your dentist that you are being treated with <Ibandronic acid 150 mg>.

Irritation, inflammation or ulceration of the oesophagus (the tube connecting your mouth with your stomach) often with symptoms of severe pain in the chest, severe pain after swallowing food and/or drink, severe nausea, or vomiting may occur, especially if you do not drink a full glass of plain water and/or if you lie down within an hour of taking <Ibandronic acid 150 mg>. If you develop these symptoms, stop taking <Ibandronic acid 150 mg> and tell your doctor straight away.

After swallowing your monthly <Ibandronic acid 150 mg> tablet, wait for 1 hour before taking any other medication, including indigestion tablets, calcium supplements, or vitamins.
