Forteo vs. Lithium carbonate: side effect and effectiveness comparison - a phase IV clinical study
We compare the side effects and drug effectiveness of Forteo and Lithium carbonate. The phase IV clinical study is created by eHealthMe based on reports (from sources including the FDA) of 154,503 people who take Forteo and Lithium carbonate, and is updated regularly. You can use the study as a second opinion to make health care decisions.
Phase IV trials are used to detect adverse drug outcomes and monitor drug effectiveness in the real world. With medical big data and AI algorithms, eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV trials and makes the results available to the public. Our original studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications including The Lancet, Mayo Clinic Proceedings, and Nature.
154,503 people who take Forteo and Lithium carbonate are studied.
