I have been on HRT for 3 months which was started for post menopausal concerns of extreme vaginal dryness . I had received a Prolia injection 5 months ago for Osteoperosis which wiped out my immune system and made me very sick. Now at 5 months post Prolia I am beginning to feel better a small bit daily. I will not do Prolia ever again or oral Biophosphates due to side effects. I went to Mayo clinic last month for Osteoperosis guidance and elvista was suggested as an option in place of my HRT. I was hoping for RX from mayo clinic but they gave suggestions for me to take back to my home doctors.

Has anyone out there in Prolia land had any experience with EVISTA?

I realize it is another medication. The mayo doc discussed side effects, which mimic HRT and menopause symptoms, but in addition, it protects the bone density that one already has from further loss...

I'd appreciate any info or second hand story recounts...

Thanks in advance!

Took Evista for three years. It did nothing for my osteoporosis, which progressed as if I was taking nothing. However the only side effect was an occasional hot flash. Its a very easy drug to take. Check with your doctor. Be aware that it does not always work.

Wish it had worked for me. No side effects.
