... I have a friend that is going to the UK and is willing to get me strontium renelate. Does anyone have any idea what is costs or if I will need a perscription? Do you think strontium citrate would be just as good? I have just completed 2 years on forteo and am starting Boniva. My doc wants me to start strontium as well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Karin (14 replies)

... Hi there, I am a 55 year old male. I have just had a dexa scan and was diagnosed with osteoporosis. My gp has recommended fosamax, however the osteoporosis society recommends protelos (strontium renelate). While researching these I was struck by the horrific side effects in both. My main concern is whether these treatments, in slowing down the loss of old bone are in fact... (0 replies)

... Sorry Canna - I just found this post. I haven't heard of any dates. The last thing I read about SR was a medical magazine at the doctor's office and all it said that they're looking at it right now. No idea how long something takes to get approved. I should ask my son to look into it for me. He knows some people at Merck Frosst in Montreal. (1 replies)

... I had great results w/two years on Forteo. My Endo and I opted to go a 3rd year on Forteo. I won't risk an oral bisphosphonate due to my Crohn's disease. I'm not wild about having to go on an infusable bisphosphonate after my 3rd year on Forteo. I so wish they'd get strontium ranelate trialed and approved in the USA!!! I assume no American drug company is interested in it nor... (14 replies)
... I think I overstayed my welcome for another reply from Mayo. My radiologist and my OBGYN feel that the strontium would not fight the Boniva and might help. Both feel it wouldn't hurt. If I were still taking Forteo they agreed one would counteract the other. It will be hard to find anything on this, I know, I've been searching but neither doctor have anything stating how...

... Hi Karin: Boy this is going to be a tough one, I don't think I've read anything on combining Stron Citrate and Boniva, but I'll look. Did your dr at Mayo give you any hint of research on the two. Up till now, all the testing points to taking osteo meds seqentially, because most of the head to head testing on bisphosphonates and anabolics led to the belief that they could... (14 replies)
... It was the densitom article, put out by the Servier Laboratories. If you see anything more, please let me know. I am taking the strontium and Boniva and I would be interested if you find anything like that. Karin (14 replies)
... Hi Karin: Glad I could help!! Which article are you referring to the PubMed link above or are you talking about the one in the Journal of Clinical Densitom? As far as finding things I think I'm just lucky and very persistent;) If you need any more help just holler... I like doing research, so I do a lot of it. I used to do that for a leaving a long time ago in the... (14 replies)
... Desert Bloom! This article was soooo very very helpful. It printed out 11 pages and I will hold on to it till I meet with my doc or have my DEXA. Where do you come up with this stuff? I thought I was good at finding answers on the internet. You win the prize. Karin (14 replies)
... Hi Karin: Here's an article that explains Stron Content on dxa's. There is an article around that gives an equation, but I can't find it right now. The problem with this is these figures are for Stron. Ranelate, and I'm not sure if Strontium Citrate is considered exactly the same. The article I'm referring to is from the journal of clinical densitom, so maybe you could... (14 replies)
