Evista No Prescription
Evista is prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis in women who are on their post menopausal stages.
Evista is prescribed for other purposes aside from the ones mentioned above.
A variety of factors promote osteoporosis.
Although Evista has been shown to increase bone density over the course of a two-year study, its longer-term ability to prevent bone fractures has not yet been proven.
Evista is prescribed to treat and prevent osteoporosis, the brittle-bone disease that strikes some women after menopause.
However, Evista does not have estrogen-like effects on the uterus and breasts, and therefore is unlikely to increase the risk of cancer, as estrogen therapy sometimes can do.
Like estrogen, Evista reduces bone loss and increases bone density.
The more factors that apply to you, the greater your chances of developing the disease.
These factors include:
- A diet low in calcium;
- An inactive lifestyle;
- Caucasian or asian descent;
- Early menopause;
- Osteoporosis in the family;
- Slender build;
