Pharmacological action - inhibiting bone resorption.
Selective modulator of estrogen receptors. As an agonist affects non-productive tissues and as an antagonist - on the reproductive. Increases the concentration of globulins, binding hormones (sex, thyroxine, corticosteroids) with a simultaneous increase in their total content in the blood without increasing the level of free fraction.
Normalizes the processes of bone resorption in the postmenopausal period (increases the mass of bone tissue), reduces the loss of calcium through the urinary system. Reduces total cholesterol, cholesterol in the LDL fraction (low density lipoprotein), serum fibrinogen, Lp (a) and increases the concentration of HDL sub-fraction (high-density lipoproteins) -C2. Does not stimulate the proliferation of the endometrium, breast tissue, reduces the risk of developing breast cancer.
Quickly absorbed after oral administration by approximately 60%. Before entering the systemic blood stream is subjected to intensive formation of glucuronides. Absolute availability is only 2%. The time to reach the mean maximum plasma concentration and bioavailability depends on the interconversions in systemic circulation and the conversions of raloxifene and its glucuronide metabolites in the intestine and liver. In patients with hepatic insufficiency, the plasma concentration is about 2.5 times higher than in healthy ones and correlates with the concentration of bilirubin. Has a large volume of distribution (does not depend on the dose). T1 / 2 in plasma - 27.7 hours. Most of the drug and its metabolites are excreted for 5 days and is found mainly in feces (less than 6% excreted in urine).

Thrombosis of veins, thromboembolism, hot flushes, painful spasms of calf muscles, peripheral edema.
With simultaneous administration with warfarin or other derivatives of coumarin, prothrombin time may decrease. Cholestyramine decreases absorption.
