Abstract: There is currently no standard approach for searching for evidence about potential drug-drug interactions (PDDIs). Twenty drug experts completed a survey about how they develop and conduct searches. All participants reported not using assistance from a librarian. Most used PubMed and Google tools, but not Embase. Experts reported the use of various keyword strategies and third party references. These data will inform the design of a new standard and validated PDDI search strategy.
