ABSTRACT: Online discussion of drug side effects among breast cancer survivors [Pharmacoepidemiol Drug Saf. 2013] – PubMed – NCBI

We aim to understand the frequency and content of side effects and associated adherence behaviors discussed by breast cancer patients related to using aromatase inhibitors (AIs), with particular emphasis on AI-related arthralgia.
