I have been taking Evista for 18 months for bone density. I have just returned from aweek stay at the hospital for pulmonary embolisms and deep vein thrombosis in the leg AND abdomen. As a result of the extensive clotting, a Greenfield " umbrella" filter was inserted to prevent additional clots from reaching the lung.
The pulmonary specialist has ruled out any other factors for the cause and concludes EVISTA IS THE CULPRIT. It is not reported to the FDA or to the manufacturer unless I do so myself. I would welcome feedback. Fran
