Raloxifine

Were you looking for information on Raloxifene? Raloxifine is a common misspelling of raloxifene.
 
Raloxifene can be prescribed to treat and prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Studies have shown that the drug also reduces the risk of breast cancer in these women (it can also be given to women who don't have osteoporosis). Raloxifene has two effects in the body: it binds to estrogen receptors in the breast and increases bone mineral density. Raloxifene comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. Side effects include hot flashes, joint pain, and flu-like symptoms.
