In brief: Possibly
Boniva (ibandronate) is one of the bisphosphonate class of drugs.
The oral forms of these all have the potential to irritate the esophagus and cause heartburn which is a form of chest pain. The proper utilization of this medication, which includes remaining upright until the stomach has empties, can reduce this serious side effect in some people.
