Were you looking for information on Raloxifene? Reloxifene is a common misspelling of raloxifene.
Raloxifene is approved for two rather different conditions. It can be used to treat and prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, as well as to reduce the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, regardless of whether they have osteoporosis. The drug has two primary effects on 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.
