What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


EVISTA (Raloxifene) is a medication prescribed to treat or prevent certain conditions in women who have undergone menopause. EVISTA can be prescribed for the following conditions:

  • Treat or prevent osteoporosis in women who have gone through menopause
  • Reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in women who have gone through menopause and have osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in women who have gone through menopause and are at risk of developing invasive breast cancer

EVISTA works by attaching to estrogen receptors in different parts of the body. EVISTA can either agonist (activate) or antagonize (deactivate) estrogen receptors depending on where they are located in the body.

EVISTA activates estrogen receptors in bone cells, which affects the normal process of bone recycling. Normally, the bone is constantly broken down and remade. When EVISTA attaches to estrogen receptors in the bone, it prevents the breakdown of bone, increasing bone mineral density and helping to prevent osteoporosis.

In breast tissue, EVISTA blocks estrogen receptors. Certain types of breast cancer rely on estrogen to grow, so by blocking estrogen receptors, EVISTA helps to prevent the growth of these breast cancers.


The EVISTA dosage is 60 mg tablet by mouth once daily.

EVISTA should only be prescribed to women who have undergone menopause. Do not use EVISTA if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


The active ingredient in EVISTA is raloxifene, which is also the name of the EVISTA generic.


Use EVISTA with caution if you have a history of cardiovascular disorders or clotting disorders. EVISTA can increase the risk of venous thromboembolism and pulmonary embolism. EVISTA may also increase the risk of cardiovascular accident (stroke).

Use with caution if you have a history of triglyceridemia.

Use with caution if you have impaired liver function.
