eHealthMe real world results:

Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Alzheimer's Disease(alzheimer's disease (ad) is the most common form of dementia, a neurologic disease): 0 (0% of females aged 62 (±5) who take the drug)

As an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea

As an adverse outcome could be a side effect of a drug, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, how many female Aspirin users aged 50 (±5) have nausea
