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.

Doxepin side effectes (Stomach bloating and Hair loss)
I was prescribed Doxepin about 45 days ago to help me get off of Ambien. The first side affect I noticed was an enlarged stomach but no weight gain. I did not have a trim waist to begin with but I was always able to see my belt below my stomach. My stomach has been making loud noises and my belly sticks out at least 2 inches further than before, without gaining any weight. I have also noticed a lot of hair loss just in the last 45 days I have started going bald just above my forehead. It looks like male pattern baldness. I need to get off of this medication.
