What is Ralista?
The medication is available in form of oral tablets and is primarily prescribed as therapy for osteoporosis. This condition can develop in some women past menopause when the production of natural estrogen hormone in the body is not sufficient to keep the bone mineral density at normal levels. As a result of that bone density decreases, which may lead to brittleness of the bones and increased risk of fractures. The drug’s main component is Raloxifene hydrochloride which has estrogen-like effect on bone tissue. It mimics the positive effect of the hormone on bones and helps to maintain normal bone mineral density, which is crucial in mitigating the increased fracture risks of osteoporosis.
