In brief: Nonsense
This is exactly what you don't want.
Prednisone would do that and causes bone loss. Boniva (ibandronate) is a bisphosphonate like Fosamax and others with main effect being a reduction in bone mineral loss and a progressive net gain in bone mineral mass. There are long term concerns with this class of drugs now regarding diminished strengh of long bones if taken for more than 5 years.
