Benicar vs. Coreg: side effect and effectiveness comparison - a phase IV clinical study
We compare the side effects and drug effectiveness of Benicar and Coreg. The phase IV clinical study is created by eHealthMe based on reports (from sources including the FDA) of 183,575 people who take Benicar and Coreg, and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe enables everyone to run phase IV clinical trial to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor effectiveness. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ peer-reviewed medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature. Most recently, phase IV clinial trails for COVID 19 vaccines have been added, check here.
