Evista is used to treat and prevent osteoporosis in women after menopause. It works by reducing loss of bone tissue and makes bones less likely to break. Evista may also be prescribed to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women who have osteoporosis or are at risk of invasive breast cancer.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Evista exactly as prescribed.
Take with or without food.
Your doctor may also recommend diet, exercise, and supplements to help reduce your risk of osteoporosis.
Evista can increase the risk of blood clots and strokes. These risks are more pronounced in women with a history of blood clots, heart disease, diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
Don’t take Evista if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
While taking Evista, don’t take more calcium supplements than your doctor has prescribed.
Before taking Evista, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Liver or kidney disease
Heart disease, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure
Currently on hormone replacement therapy, blood-thinning or cholesterol medication.
Common side effects of Evista include:
Swelling in hands, feet, ankles
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:
Stroke – sudden numbness or weakness, severe headache, vision problems, slurred speech
Signs of a blood clot in your leg – swelling, warmth, pain, redness in leg(s)
Signs of blood clot in your lung – wheezing, sudden cough or coughing up blood, chest pain, rapid breathing
Is Evista a hormone therapy?
No. Evista binds to estrogen receptors in the body, but it is not an estrogen or a hormone. For this reason, Evista is not effective in relieving symptoms of menopause like hot flashes, and isn’t normally prescribed to women until after menopause.
What else can I do to prevent osteoporosis or treat its symptoms?
Your doctor may also prescribe supplements like calcium and vitamin D, which you should take exactly as prescribed. Ask your doctor for exercise recommendations to help improve bone and muscle strength.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
