Hey guys, there is something really confusing bout those 2 on First Aid. (confusing for me at least).

FA says that Tamoxifen antagonizes breast tissue, hence use for ER-positive breast cancer. Raloxifene agonist on bone, hence good for osteoporosis.

But I thought that Tamoxifen can also be good for osteoporosis and Raloxifene can also be used for ER-positive breast cancer?

Am I right or wrong?

Is it right to say that.. the only difference between those two is that Raloxifene won't cause endometrial ca, but tamoxifen will?
