About Ralista 60mg Tablet:

Raloxifene affects the cycle of bone formation and breakdown in the body, and reduces loss of bone tissue.

Raloxifene is used to treat or prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Raloxifene is also used to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in postmenopausal women who have osteoporosis or who are otherwise at risk of invasive breast cancer.

Raloxifene is not a cancer medication and will not treat breast cancer.

Raloxifene may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Taking raloxifene may increase your risk of a blood clot in your leg, your lung, or your eye. You should not take this medicine if you have ever had a blood clot.

Raloxifene can also increase your risk of a stroke, which can be fatal. This risk is highest if you have coronary heart disease or certain risk factors (such as menopause, diabetes, smoking, being overweight, having high blood pressure or high cholesterol, having a family history of coronary artery disease, or if you have had a hysterectomy).

Do not take raloxifene if you are pregnant or may become pregnant.

Do not breast-feed while taking raloxifene.

What Are The Contraindictions Of Ralista 60mg Tablet?

Taking raloxifene may increase your risk of a blood clot in your leg, your lung, or your eye. You should not take this medicine if you have ever had a blood clot.

You also should not use raloxifene if you are allergic to it, if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Raloxifene can also increase your risk of a stroke, which can be fatal. This risk is highest if you have coronary heart disease or certain risk factors (such as menopause, diabetes, smoking, being overweight, having high blood pressure or high cholesterol, having a family history of coronary artery disease, or if you have had a hysterectomy).

To make sure raloxifene is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • coronary artery disease (atherosclerosis);
  • heart disease, high blood pressure;
  • a history of stroke (including "mini-stroke");
  • liver or kidney disease;
  • high triglycerides (usually occurs with high cholesterol);
  • if you have not gone through menopause;
  • if you have had breast cancer in the past; or
  • if you take a blood thinner (warfarin, Coumadin), cholesterol medication, or estrogen hormone replacement therapy.

Although it is not likely that a postmenopausal woman would be pregnant, raloxifene can cause birth defects. Do not take this medicine if you are pregnant or may become pregnant. Use effective birth control if you are not past menopause, and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant during treatment.

It is not known whether raloxifene passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.

Raloxifene is not for use in men.
