What are the side effects of Raloxifene?

Hi...My rhuematogist just prescribed me raloxofine due to a recent bone density scan that indicated I may have bone loss due to me being on prednisone for the past year (Polymyalgia Rhuematica) which I am now being weaned off from. I am concerned about how long a typical individual has to be on this med and what the long term side effects are. Thank you
