I take Strontium first thing in the morning with just water. I tried at night but it seemed to be interfering with my sleep (I'm a lousy sleeper). I don't usually eat anything for 2-3 hours after I take it, although I do drink coffee. If I do eat something in that time frame, I make sure the food doesn't have a lot of calcium. I'm retired so I don't have the time constraints of a working person.
I also take mine in early morning and I make sure I do not eat/drink anything with calcium for a few hours after. Morning or night whatever works for you as long as it does not interfere with calcium intake... good luck
HI anniev, i take mine at bedtime. I don't usually eat much after supper so for me bedtime works best. I take thyroid meds first thing in the morning and don't want anything interfering with its absorption. Calcium and strontium are similar and since calcium can interfere with thyroid meds i figured strontium might to.
The bottle i have says you can take with food too, but if i do snack in the evening its usually something light so i don't worry about it. Like Canna said, the best time i what works for you. take care...phyllis
I take mine at night just before bed. I am like phylwill and am on thyroid meds so I take those in the AM about 1 hour before breakfast and then the strontium before bed - well after all my supplements. hugs - jrose
Hi anniev, i haven't had any side effects at all, except improved density. The only thing i've noticed is that when i stopped taking if 30 days prior to the DEXA i lost a couple of pounds that came back when i started taking it again. I don't know if that is just a coincidence or what, but its happened twice now. take care...phyllis
