Raloxifene, others: Including aromatase inhibitors. These drugs all have a place in cancer treatment; they should be considered by your sister's oncologist.

Options: The other group of drugs used in this situation are the aromotase inhibitors. If she is pre-menopausal she is not a candidate for them. She may be able to take evista (raloxifene).
