Therapeutic Group: Bone and Joint Disorder » Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator
Presentation
Aloxif

Aloxif : Each tablet contains Raloxifene Hydrochloride INN 60 mg.

Descriptions
Raloxifene is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). The biological actions of Raloxifene are largely mediated through binding to estrogen receptor. This binding results in activation of certain estrogenic pathways and blockade of others. Raloxifene reduces resorption of bone and decreases overall bone turnover. These effects on bone are manifested as reductions in the serum and urine levels of bone turnover markers. Clinical trials and data suggest that Raloxifene lacks estrogen like effects on the uterus and breast tissues. Raloxifene is rapidly absorbed after oral administration, metabolized in liver, and primarily excreted in faeces and rest in urine.
Indications
Treatment and prevention of post-menopausal osteoporosis.
Dosage & Administration
One tablet (60 mg) once daily orally. It can be taken without regard to meal. High fat meal increases the absorption of Raloxifene.
Side Effects
Raloxifene is generally well tolerated. However, a few side effects like hot flushes, leg cramps, and influenza like symptoms, gastro-intestinal disturbances etc may be seen usually during first 6 months of treatment and were not different from placebo.
Precautions
Concurrent Estrogen Therapy: Concomitant use of Raloxifene with systemic estrogens is not recommended.
Lipid Metabolism: Concurrent use of Raloxifene and lipid-lowering agents has not been studied.
