Ingredients

  • STRONTIUM RANELATE 2g

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Strontium exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Strontium must be taken regularly for it to work well. You may need to take Strontium for some time before the full benefits can be felt. Continue taking Strontium even when you feel better. Do not stop taking it unless instructed by your doctor.

Take Strontium on an empty stomach at bedtime, at least 2 hours after your dinner.

If you need to, you may lie down soon after taking Strontium.

Strontium comes as a sachet of granules. Empty the contents of the sachet into a glass. Add at least 30ml of plain water. Stir to disperse the granules evenly in the water. Drink the solution immediately. If you could not drink it immediately, ensure that you stir it thoroughly again before drinking. In any case, do not leave the solution for more than 24 hours. If more than 24 hours have passed, you will need to make a fresh solution with a new sachet.

Do not take Strontium at the same time with milk, milk products (such as cheese, yoghurt) or any other drink or food besides plain water. Do not take it at the same time as any other medication.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have:

- kidney disease
- phenylketonuria (a metabolic disease)
- a history of blood clots or if you are currently being treated for blood clots

If you are going for an operation, including minor operations and dental work, always inform your doctor, surgeon or dentist that you are taking Strontium. Let your doctor know if you are going for any operations which may require you to have a prolonged period of bed rest.

Strontium may affect the results of certain laboratory tests. Inform your doctor that you are taking Strontium if you are going for any blood or urine tests.

Ensure that you take enough calcium and vitamin D while being treated with Strontium. Your doctor will advise you about how much of these supplements to take.

You should also include the following lifestyle changes to further reduce the risk of osteoporosis:

- regular exercise
- reduce intake of alcohol
- stop smoking

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant. Do not take Strontium if you are pregnant. Use effective birth control methods while being treated with Strontium.

Alert your doctor if you are breastfeeding. Strontium passes into the breast milk. Do not breastfeed while being treated with Strontium.

Strontium is not meant for children or teenagers younger than 18 years old.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Do not take Strontium at the same time with milk, milk products (such as cheese, yoghurt) or any other drink or food besides plain water.

Wait at least 2 hours after you have taken these products before taking Strontium. These types of food and drink may reduce the absorption of Strontium if taken at the same time.

Why do I need this medicine?

Strontium is used to strengthen thin and weak bones in people who have or are at risk of osteoporosis. It helps to stop the loss of bone and also helps to increase bone mass. This helps to reduce the risk of getting a fracture.

What side effects could I experience?

Stop taking Strontium and alert your doctor immediately if you develop any rashes, pain or swelling in the legs (especially the lower legs) or difficulty breathing.

Other side effects of Strontium include nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach pain, mouth ulcers, headache, skin irritation, memory loss and fainting. These side effects are usually mild and temporary.

Alert your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or refuse to go away.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Keep the sachets sealed until it is time to take your medicine.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Alert your doctor if you are taking any antibiotics. Do not take Strontium while you are being treated with these antibiotics:

- tetracycline antibiotics such as doxycycline, minocycline
- quinolone antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin, norfloxacin, nalidixic acid

Make sure that you complete the full course of antibiotics before starting on Strontium.

Do not take any of the following medicines at the same time as Strontium. There should be a 2 hour interval between these medicines and Strontium:

- antacids
- calcium supplements
- multivitamins

Always inform your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal tonics, supplements and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
