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.

I'm going to share my experience with you because my fertility doctor told me I was wrong and going into menopause when I suggested that DHEA could be causing hot flushes every half an hour. I stopped seeing that doctor, and stopped taking the DHEA and sure enough the hot flushes stopped too. I'm now with a new doc and about to start IVF. The new doctor confirmed, of course DHEA can cause hot flushes. Hope this helps :)
