Response to AHRQ on CERTs
I have found that taste and smell complaints from medications are at the top of the list for lack of compliance with many drug regimens, e.g., protease inhibitors. Other physical factors such as shape and size of drugs are also important. Are these legitimate topics for research on therapeutics?
