Bone density in hips severe, take Crestor (rosuvastatin) for high cholesterol, mother stroke at 77. Dr. Recommends Evista, so many scary side effects. Yes or no?

I LIke. Evista (raloxifene). It has good bone density help and has reduced breast cancer effects as well. My patients dont complain of many side effects. It is my favorite non hormonal choice.
Evista (raloxifene) has. been shown to help prevent spine fractures, but does NOT help prevent hip fractures, so I couldn't recommend it for that reason. The crestor will help bone density a little. Make sure you're taking the proper calcium and vitamin D. THere are other options, and it depends upon whether you have been on other therapy before. check w/your doctor.
