Symptomatic Reactions (SR) reported and defined. Patients may report SRs that do not meet the accepted definition of SR, i.e. "A new symptom not present at baseline or a worsening of a presenting complaint by >30%." This table list reported SR with the mean intensity and SR by definition for presenting complaints of musculoskeletal, neurological/circulatory or psychological origins.
