Strontium citrate side effects


Has anyone experienced back pain while taking 680 mg of strontium citrate?
I discontinued Actonel after taking it for 11 weeks. After 1 month off the Actonel, I started taking 680 mg of Strontium Citrate before bedtime. After 4days of taking the Strontium I had terrible back pain. I thought it was my own back problems acting up, but now I am not sure. I cannot get any relief from my usual remedies, and the level of pain is constant. I would appreciate any feedback. I value your opinions.

Thank you,

Re: Strontium citrate side effects

Hi wolf0999, welcome to the board. I've been taking 680 mg. a night for almost a year and a half and i haven't noticed any new aches or pains. In fact, after about 6 months i realized that my back didn't ache as much or as often as it had. Everyone is different so i can't say if your back pain coming back or mine going away is from the stontium or something completely unrelated. Did you have any back pain while taking the actenol? Have injured or stained your back recently? The only thing i can think of would be to stop taking the strontium for a month or so and see if the back pain goes away or gets better. Have you seen your dr. about the pain? Hope you get to feeling better soon..take care..phyllis
