    I had osteoporosis. I’ve been taking Evista for just over a year. My latest bone density scan shows and improvement. I’m no longer in the osteoporosis range but have improved and now have osteopenia. I also work out 3 times a week doing barre classes which includes weight bearing exercises and a lot of strengthening of the core muscles. This life style and medication are working for me. I tri ...

    I have taken Evista for about five years. My teeth started going bad and the oral surgeon said that Evista was the cause. If it has made my teeth to break off then what is it doing to my bones??? I am going to stop taking it.

    In 2016 I gave this medicine a better rating because it seemed to take away my hip and spine pain. Now, I am not sure what to say, but I owe you people to be honest: my new condition may have nothing to do with this medicine, but this one is the only one I have been taking for the last 26 months, so I am afraid it could have had some influence. I was diagnosed with MEC (mucoepidermoid carcinoma - ... Show Full Comment

    I've taken Evista for a few years; my doctor wants me to stop Evista and start taking a biphosphonate. I have chosen to follow a more natural, holistic treatment to increase my bone mass. St one point my mass increased and my last density test showed a decrease. so I would have to say the Evista is not that effective nor preventative.

I had constant pain, could not sleep at night. Would wake up when I turned over in bed. Then after one week, my legs, ankles and feet began swelling. This swelling never went away, was told by my doctor to discontinue and when the side effects ... Show Full Comment
