I am 57, do not take hormones,but my doctor is having me try a drug called Evista, since Ihave some bone loss and I havebeen told from bone scan resultsthat I have the beginnings of osteopenia. Do you have information about the drug, Evista?One of the side effects is blood clots, which concerns me. Thanks for your help!

Read The Estrogen Alternative by Dr. Steven Goldstein and Laurie Ashner. The entire book is about Evista and should answer your questions.
