Description

What is Evista?

Evista contains the medication raloxifene and is used to treat or prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and can also be used to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in those women who have osteoporosis or are at risk of invasive breast cancer.

How does Evista work?

Evista works by affecting the cycle of bone formation and breakdown in the body, reducing loss of bone tissue. It slows down bone loss and helps to keep bones strong making them less likely to break. Raloxifene is not an estrogen hormone but acts like estrogen in your bones. In your uterus and breasts, raloxifene works like an estrogen blocker. Evista should not be used before menopause. 

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Evista should be taken orally and can be taken with or without food.
  • Evista is usually prescribed to be taken once daily. You should not change or increase your Evista dosage unless advised to by a doctor.
  • Evista is most effective when taken regularly. Try to take this medication at the same time each day.
  • Raloxifene should be swallowed whole. It has a bitter taste so should not be crushed or chewed.
  • Ensure that you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet.
