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.

clearlax
I've been using clearlax for more than 5 years daily. before that i used other pill laxatives,prune juice would work for awhile. Now I have stomac ulcers and I was wondering if long term use may be the cause. I certainly hope not, I really don't want to give up my clearlax. I never had gas or bloating from using it. Clearlax has never let me down.
