I have just been diagnosed with osteopenia and I am sure my physician will want to put me
on Evista or Fosamax; I will not take either one of these meds and plan to take Ipriflavones (a
derivative of Soy) which has been shown to help build bone. In any event one of the KNOWN
SIDE EFFECTS OF EVISTA ARE BLOOD CLOTS WHICH IS WHY I WILL NOT TAKE
THIS DRUG-- It is a shame that some of the drugs used to treat ilnesses are worse than
the disease they are supposed to treat. The medical literature is very clear with regards
to Evista regarding the fact that blood clots can form as a direct result of Evista. These
clots can go to the lung and cause pulmonary embolus;
