What are the side effects of the medicine Raloxifene?

Recommended Posts

Raloxifene 60 mg Tablet, a medication primarily used to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and to reduce the risk of breast cancer, may also have associated side effects. While many individuals tolerate it well, some may experience adverse reactions. Common side effects of raloxifene include hot flashes, leg cramps, swelling of the hands or feet, joint pain, and sweating. These symptoms are usually mild to moderate and may improve over time as the body adjusts to the medication.

Less common but more serious side effects of raloxifene may include blood clots in the legs or lungs, which can manifest as swelling, pain, warmth, redness in the legs, difficulty breathing, or chest pain. Women taking raloxifene should promptly seek medical attention if they experience any signs of a blood clot.

Additionally, raloxifene may increase the risk of stroke in some individuals, especially those with existing risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, or a history of cardiovascular disease. It's essential for individuals taking raloxifene to be aware of these potential side effects and to discuss any concerns with their healthcare provider.
