What is Ralista 60 mg 

Ralista 60 mg Tablet is a medication prescribed to postmenopausal women for the treatment and prevention of Osteoporosis. 

It contains Raloxifene, which successfully prevents the high possibility of bone loss in postmenopausal women. It increases bone strength and reduces the risk of fractures.

This medication requires a prescription and can only be purchased with a doctor's recommendation.

Cipla Ltd. is the primary pharmaceutical company that manufactures Ralista 60mg.

Uses of Ralista 60 mg 

Ralista 60 mg is prescribed for Osteoporosis and prevention of invasive breast cancer.


Osteoporosis is defined as "Porous Bone." It is a condition that weakens bones, and postmenopausal women are at a higher risk for unexpected and sudden bone fractures. 

It reduces bone mass and strength. Typically, the disease develops asymptomatically and is not detected until the weakening bones produce painful fractures. 

Prevention of invasive Breast Cancer

Invasive breast cancer is Cancer that has moved from where it started in the breast to healthy tissue around it. 

This medication is prescribed to postmenopausal women to reduce their risk of invasive Breast cancer.

How does Ralista 60 mg work 

Ralista 60mg contains Raloxifene, a member of the pharmacological class of Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators-SERMs. 

Raloxifene mimics the effects of Estrogen (a female hormone produced by the body) to increase bone density (thickness).

Raloxifene is not an Estrogen hormone but has estrogen-like effects in certain tissues, such as the bones. In the uterus and breasts, Raloxifene acts as an estrogen blocker. It has no effect on menopause symptoms like hot flashes.
