General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

advair vs duleria
I was diagnosed with adult asthma, the doctor started me on duleria 200 two puffs twice daily. At first it was better I was not out of breath from doing simple task, as time went on I started have side effects like significant weight loss and muscle cramps. My feet would cramp so bad at might it woke me up. I was also significant nausea, I never threw up but it felt like if I could I would feel better. I stopped the treatment myself and I will see the doctor next week to see what else he can come up with in the mean time I am exploring essential oils.

advair diskus
I have never had any problems with Advair Diskus, no thrush, it hasn't made my GERD worse or caused any other problems. I am very satisfied wit it. I have tried Symbicort and I had an allergic reaction. My insurance now wants me to change to Dulera. When comparing all three meds I'm not sure Dulera will be a good match for me due to my Gerd.
