Evista is a medication which is used to help prevent and treat thinning of the bones (osteoporosis) only in post-menopausal women. Evista stops the bone loss that can develop in women after menopause and decreases the risk of invasive breast cancer by blocking estrogen in breast and uterine tissue. It is also used to reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in post-menopausal women who have osteoporosis or who are at risk of invasive breast cancer.
