How Evista helps treat osteoporosis.

Filed under: Uncategorized — robertprice @ 3:05 pm

Evista is prescribed to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. This medication, which is available to purchase at our online Canadian pharmacy, treats and prevents osteoporosis by making your bones stronger and less likely to break. Additionally, Evista can help decrease your chances of getting invasive breast cancer.

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become fragile and brittle, which can eventually lead to breaks and fractures. It can affect any bone, but fractures of the hip and spine can be the most damaging as they impair a person’s ability to walk and may cause permanent disability or death. Spinal and vertebral breaks can be just as serious as they affect a person’s height, inflict severe back pain, and cause deformity.

What important information do I need to know before taking Evista?

While Evista can be very beneficial, there are some women who may not be able to take it. You should not take this drug if you are nursing, pregnant, or thinking about becoming pregnant, as it may harm the baby.

Tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, a history of smoking, or you have had a stroke, mini-stroke, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, or heart attack.

Estrogen can not be taken with Evista. Make sure to tell to your doctor if you are taking estrogen in the form of pills, patches, or injection.

Because of Evista’s tendency to promote clots, you should not take it during long periods of immobilization such as recovery from surgery or prolonged bed rest, or for 72 hours beforehand. If you are scheduled for surgery, make sure the doctor is aware that you are taking this medication.

How is Evista taken?

Evista is taken once daily, at a time of your choosing, with or without food. For the best results it is very important to take this drug exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you have trouble remembering to take your medication it is recommended to take it at about the same time every day.

What are the side effects?

Stop taking Evista and contact your doctor immediately if any of the following severe side effects occur:

  • leg pain or a feeling of warmth in the calves
  • swelling of the legs, hands, or feet
  • sudden chest pain, shortness of breath, or coughing up blood
  • sudden change in vision, such as loss of vision or blurred vision

Common side effects that do not require immediate medical attention include:

  • difficulty sleeping
  • fluid build-up
  • hot flashes, leg cramps, muscle aches
  • sinus pressure or drainage
  • stomach or intestinal gas, stomach pain
  • sweating, weight gain
