Raloxifene

Warning

Raloxifene may rarely cause serious blood clots, especially in the legs or lungs. Women who have or had blood clots (including in the legs, lungs, or eyes) should not take raloxifene. Also, women who have had a heart attack or are at risk for a heart attack may rarely have an increased risk of dying from a stroke while taking raloxifene. Before starting treatment with raloxifene, tell your doctor if you have or had blood clots in your legs/lungs/eyes, a stroke, mini-stroke (TIA), heart disease, heart attack, high cholesterol, irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, or if you smoke. Discuss these risks and the benefits of using raloxifene with your doctor.
