How does Generic Raloxifene (Generic Evista) Works (Mechanism) ?

Raloxifene (Generic Evista) tablets contain the active ingredient raloxifene hydrochloride, which is a type of medicine called a selective oestrogen receptor modulator (SERM).

Oestrogen, the main female hormone, has many actions throughout the body. Bone tissue, cholesterol metabolism, breast tissue and uterine tissue are all affected by this hormone. At the menopause, blood levels of oestrogen start to decrease and this affects the tissues that are normally responsive to oestrogen.

Raloxifene (Generic Evista) is used to both prevent and treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Raloxifene (Generic Evista) works by acting on oestrogen receptors in the bone tissue, where it mimics the natural effects of oestrogen. This gradually reverses the excessive breakdown of bone that happens at menopause and causes an increase in bone mineral density, making bones stronger. Raloxifene (Generic Evista) has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of spinal fractures, but not hip fractures.
