Bondronat is a type of drug called a bisphosphonate. Bisphosphonates are used to treat osteoporosis. It works by slowing bone loss and allowing new bone to be formed.

Ibandronic is used to prevent and treat certain types of bone loss (osteoporosis). Osteoporosis causes bones to become thinner and break more easily. Your chance of developing osteoporosis increases after menopause, as you age, or if you take corticosteroid medications (such as prednisone) for long periods.
