Were you looking for information on Raloxifene? Raloxiphene is a common misspelling of raloxifene.
Raloxifene is typically used to treat and prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women; however, it can also be used to reduce the risk of breast cancer in these women, regardless of whether they have osteoporosis. It works by binding to estrogen receptors in the breast and by increasing bone mineral density. Raloxifene, which is available by prescription, is typically taken once a day. Side effects include hot flashes, joint pain, and flu-like symptoms.
