The blood clots only pertain to people with a history of them. If you've never had a blood clot, you can use it.


Evista is a good drug. It's a synthetic hormone that has no effect on breast tissue. It helps build bone strength.


The only negative I've heard of is possible hot flashes, especiall for women who've stopped ERT and are now taking Evista.
