Buy Evista brand or generic Raloxifene prescription drug from Canada
Why is Evista prescribed?
Evista, with the generic name Raloxifene HCl, is used to treat osteoporosis (bone thinning and loss) in women who have undergone menopause. It is also used to reduce the risk of the development of invasive ductal or lobular carcinoma (types of breast cancer) in postmenopausal women who are at risk of developing this condition or have osteoporosis. However, this medication cannot be used as a treatment for invasive breast cancers or as a prevention for the recurrence of a previously treated breast cancer.
What does it do?
Raloxifene belongs to a class of medications called Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERMs), that mimic the effects of estrogen to facilitate bone growth by increasing the density of bone to prevent osteoporosis. It also blocks the effects of estrogen on the breast to reduce the risk of developing invasive breast cancer in women who have a high propensity to develop this condition.
How should I take it?
Evista is currently available as a 60mg tablet taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without meals.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
