In brief: Bisphosphonates
Evista is primarily given to combat/prevent osteoporosis.
Alternative medications are bisphosphonates such as fosamax, actonel, boniva. Reclast (zoledronic acid) is an injectable. Evista also has a breast cancer chemo prevention indication with the alternative being tamoxifen. Aroma taste inhibitors are being studied as further alternatives.
