  • Side effects (including severity and how people recover from them)
  • Associated conditions or symptoms
  • Drug effectiveness
  • Demographic data regarding drug use

How the study uses the data?

The study is based on ergocalciferol and cod liver oil (the active ingredients of Vitamin d3 and Omega-3, respectively), and Vitamin d3 and Omega-3 (the brand names). Other drugs that have the same active ingredients (e.g. generic drugs) are not considered.

What is Vitamin d3?

Vitamin d3 has active ingredients of ergocalciferol. (latest outcomes from Vitamin d3 15,213 users)

What is Omega-3?

Omega-3 has active ingredients of cod liver oil. It is often used in high blood cholesterol. (latest outcomes from Omega-3 606 users)

How to use the study?
