What are the possible risks and side-effects of raloxifene?

A small minority of women experience:

  • uncomfortable hot flushes
  • leg cramps
  • swollen ankles
  • flu-like symptoms.

Less common side-effects include blood clots in the legs or inflammation in the leg veins, but this treatment won't be used if you have a history of these.
