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.

My life has finally changed for the better!
I am a 40 year old man, I am active, have a great career and have a great life all in all. Throughout my entire life I have suffered from terrible blushing. Without a doubt it impacted my life because I would shy away from situations because even when I would say something funny for example, I would blush and then everybody would laugh at me and I would blush even more. Over the years I have gained a lot of confidence and have to a certain extent learnt to live with the blushing and just accept it. Although it is never easy. I do a lot of public speaking as well. Over the last few years, due to the nature of my job, I have become anxiety ridden. I would go into meetings and would have to fight to control sweating and blushing, but was not sure which triggered which first. I have avoided interviews for years now for this very reason. The final straw was when I went for a haircut and had a sweating attack and looked at myself in the mirror and my face was scarlet and drippiing wet. I decided there and then to do something. Left the hair salon, looked on the internet for something to stop hot flushes and found Dixarit. I walked into a pharmacy and was given Menograine which is a generic of Dixarit. I have taken two per day every morning since then and my life has changed over night. I no longer blush and becasue I am no longer worried about that I have no longer got the anxiety and becasue I no longer have the anxiety I am no longer breaking out in a sweat. I have no idea how a tablet as small as this can have such a profound effect. Twice yesterday I had to step out of meetings and both times when I went back in, the entire room was waiting for me with a question. Normally that would set off blushing, anxiety and sweating. Yesterday I walked in, got confonted with a question and I could make a joke, speak loudly and confidently and do my job with no fear. So, if you have run out of options, try it. Ignore all the comments about how it doesn't work and this and that, just take a leap of faith and see if it works for you. I am pretty sure it will. I read about it and found that most people take two in the morning to start. I did just that. I now take one in the morning and one in the evening. It is an amazing transformation of my life.
