  • CJ on Aug, 29, 2014:

    I have been taking Evista for approximately 2 years without and side effects and about 2 months ago was switched over to the generic for Evista and since then I have had constant ringing in the ears. I have also noticed burning when urinating and infrequency in urination and vaginal dryness. My physician has ordered the original Evista and hopefully when I receive it and start it again the ringing in my ears will finally go away along with all of the other unpleasant symptoms. This has been a terrible experience! (I am a 62 year old female.)
