A study that used Internet data mining techniques found a side effect of combining paroxetine and pravastatin before it was detected by the FDA's Adverse Event Reporting System. Analysis of Web queries entered by 6 million Internet users in 2010 found that patients taking both drugs are more at risk of hyperglycemia than those taking just one of the two therapies. The approach offers a valuable tool for public health, researchers said.
