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.

stroke
My mom was 83 years old and her blood pressure was going up to 220 in the a.m. They did not know why it was going so high. Her doctor thought she was on to many pills and was trying to cut some of them. So he took her off of Pradaxa and told her to take baby aspirin instead. A week later she has a stroke. Her blood pressure was 260 when we got to the hospital. A week later she died. I blame her doctor. Am I wrong?
