I tried taking strontium but I found that it caused acid reflux. Is there a way to take it other than directed "on an empty stomach" that might mitigate the reflux problem?

If you have a medical condition like acid reflux, you would need to consult your health care provider for a specific recommendation.  In general, strontium could be taken with a meal if it was easier on your stomach as long as any calcium supplements were taken at a different meal or snack at least two hours away and you made certain to get at least 1000 mg total calcium per day or higher as per your health care provider.  We often suggest that people alternate the strontium and calcium between 3 meals per day and one snack—ie calcium at breakfast, strontium at lunch, calcium at afternoon snack, strontium at dinner in the evening or some variation.
