They do not!: Since they lower Estradiol levels, they can make osteoporosis more likely, but the do not cause osteonecrosis of the jaw! obviously used for estrogen receptor positive breast ca, Evista (raloxifene) would be a good trade for your tamoxifen, in the sense that it would prevent osteoporosis as well as breast ca!
