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.

Distalgesic the only one that works.
I am fighting 6 diseases including Parkinsons disease and osteoarthritis of the spine, hips, and knees. I used this drug for years before it was unlicenced and now i have more pain than before i cannot get it. It really was the only painkiller that helped. I know some people find it makes them drowsey that may be the opiate in it but that same effect also acts as a muscle relaxer and that relieved my pain. Not all bad for all people
