In brief: Rare

In brief: Only in Europe
Strontium ranelate is only available by prescription in europe.
In the U.S., you can only get strontium citrate, which has never been tested. Ranelate is reported to increase bone density, but has also been associated with increasing fracture list. Do not take unless you first discuss with your doctor regarding your other choices.
