What is Evista?

Evista is a prescription medication given to women after they’ve been through the menopause. It is taken orally as a tablet. Evista is prescribed to:

  • Treat osteoporosis
  • Lower the risk of invasive breast cancer, if you are at risk of developing it

Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens your bones. You either don’t have enough bone mass, or you lose too much bone mass. Your bones become more fragile and easier to break.

Post-menopausal women are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis. Your bones are living organs, and your body continually replaces old bone tissue with new. Estrogen is used to create new bone tissue, but estrogen levels often drop after the menopause. This means as old bone is broken down, less new bone is made to replace it.

Evista helps to treat osteoporosis as it mimics some of the effects of estrogen. It’s not a hormone, like estrogen, but it has a similar effect on your body, including helping you produce new bone tissue. Evista can reduce the risk of bone breaks and can prevent osteoporosis.

As you age, your risk of developing certain cancers increases. The risk of developing breast cancer also increases if you go through the menopause after you’re 55 years old. Your physician can assess your risk of developing breast cancer based on factors like your age and your family history. They may decide you’re at risk and prescribe Evista.

Research has shown that Evista can reduce the chance of post-menopausal women developing invasive breast cancers. These are breast cancers that start in the glands or ducts and then move into other breast tissue.

Evista active ingredients

Evista’s active ingredient is called raloxifene. Raloxifene is not a hormone, but it works in a similar way on your body as the hormone estrogen. It attaches itself to areas on your cells called estrogen receptors that estrogen normally attaches to. This causes raloxifene to have a similar effect on your cells that estrogen does.

Evista side effects & Evista drug interactions

Common side effects caused by Evista affect around 1 in 10 people who take it. They include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, an upset stomach, flu-like symptoms, hot flushes, and an increase in blood pressure.

More serious Evista side effects can happen, but this is much rarer. These can include allergic reactions to the medication, an increased risk of strokes, and blood clots forming in veins and arteries including in your lungs. Your physician will assess your risk of side effects versus the benefits of taking Evista. Talk to them if you’re concerned about side effects. 

Some medications can interact with each other impacting how they work and making certain side effects more likely. Medicines that may interact with Evista include:

  • Cholestyramine
  • Warfarin
  • Other highly protein-bound drugs, like diazepam, diazoxide, and lidocaine
  • Any other oral estrogen therapies 

Evista warnings & precautions

Don’t take Evista if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient raloxifene
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Evista (check the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Have been or are currently being treated for blood clots in your legs (deep vein thrombosis), lungs (pulmonary embolism), or in your eyes (retinal vein thrombosis)
  • Have liver disease
  • Have severe kidney problems
  • Have any unexplained vaginal bleeding
  • Have active uterine cancer
  • Are not a post-menopausal woman 

Talk to your physician before taking Evista if you:

  • Have breast cancer
  • Are receiving another oral estrogen therapy
  • Have had a stroke or have been told you’re at risk of one
  • Have had a heart attack or have been told you’re at risk of one
  • Are, or will be, immobilized for some time, such as being in a wheelchair or having to stay in bed while recovering from an operation or illness. Immobility can increase your risk of blood clots
  • Are lactose intolerant
