Reviews for Raloxifene
Review by thetruthhurts (taken for 5 to 10 years):
Evista (raloxifene) for Osteoporosis: Very positive response. Side advantage breast cancer protection. Major problem "hot flashes". Self limiting problem side effect. No need for specific dosing instructions such as with biguanides.

Review by ProudMari:
Evista (raloxifene) for Osteoporosis: Evista was prescribed by my doctor - was on my fourth pill and started experiencing vaginal burning and urinary incontinence. After an examination I was diagnosed with vaginitis and a bladder infection. Went off them immediately.

Review by shibumi0202:
Evista (raloxifene) for Breast Cancer, Prevention: Had hot flashes for the first few months about an hour after I took it, I take it at night with my other medications. I found that I can not drink alcohol. I become very nauseated and throw up. Otherwise I have taken it for almost 3 years without any real problem.
