    Question "more efficacious"

    Hi everyone,

    Is the below sentence correct?

    "It is found to be more efficacious when compared to xxxxxxx".

    Thanks in advance.

    Default Re: "more efficacious"

    We don't use the word "efficacious" very often. Whether or not the sentence makes sense would really depend on context. What will replace the "xxxxxxxx" part?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
