What is Evista used for?
Evista is prescribed to help treat and slow down bone loss (Osteoporosis) in postmenopausal women. It is also indicated to lower chances of getting invasive breast cancer that have never been diagnosed with this disease, but have a high chance of getting it. Evista isn’t a cancer medicine, and it won’t treat breast cancer; it’s only used for prevention.
During menopause, a woman’s body slows down the production of the hormone called Estrogen. By the time a woman a woman has gone through menopause, their body has a greater chance of sustaining bone fractures because Estrogen is an important part of maintaining healthy and strong bones.

How does Evista work?
Evista comes as a tablet for oral administration, containing the active ingredient Raloxifene, which is in a class of medicines known as selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs).
