Hi,
Evista  or Raloxifene is an oral selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that has estrogenic actions on bone and anti-estrogenic actions on the uterus and breast. It is used in the prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.  It is a prescription medicine for women after menopause to treat or prevent osteoporosis. You should take calcium and vitamin D along with EVISTA (raloxifene) if you do not get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet. Consult your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
