Table of contents:

Evista (Raloxifene) is a drug indicated to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, as well as reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. It belongs to a class of drugs known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERM). It works by blocking the effects of estrogen, which helps reduce bone loss.

Evista is used to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in women with osteoporosis or those who are at elevated risk for developing the disease. It does not act like estrogen in the uterus and is not linked to an increased risk of endometrial cancer. It is not a hormone and has no effect on fertility.

Uses and Dosage

Evista (raloxifene) comes in the form of a tablet which should be taken by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. It is important to take this medication regularly to get the maximum benefit from it, and to help you remember, take it at the same time each day. The tablet should be swallowed whole; do not crush or chew it, as it has a bitter taste.

The recommended dosage of Evista (raloxifene hydrochloride tablets) is one 60 mg tablet per day, which can be taken at any time of the day without regard to meals. This dosage should not be exceeded, as taking a higher dosage may increase the risk of side effects.
