What is raloxifene?

Evista 60 mg Tab
Drug Name: RALOXIFENE ORAL
Other Brand Names: Evista
Uses: Raloxifene is used to prevent and treat bone loss (osteoporosis) in women after menopause. Maintaining strong bones by slowing bone loss helps to reduce the risk of fractures. Raloxifene may also lower the chance of getting a certain type of breast cancer (invasive) in women after menopause. This drug is different from hormones (including estrogens and progestins). It works by acting like estrogen (as a selective estrogen receptor modulator or SERM) in some parts of the body. Raloxifene helps to preserve bone mass, but it does not affect the breast and uterus like estrogen or relieve symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. This medication is not recommended for use in women before menopause. It should not be used in children. This medication should not be used to prevent heart disease.
