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 am not very old only 38 so when I went to the doctor with a persistant numb patch on my left thigh that had rapidly progressed from the size of a 20c piece to encompass the entire outside half of my thigh and suddenly included cramping and sizeable amounts of pain in my leg I was rather stunned when I walked out of the doctors office with an order to have an x-ray done and a script for endep to deal with the pain still no closer to the magical answer that would take me back to my active self I started wondering what have I done to myself to cause this sort of injury and how do I repair the damage so began my journey of discovery I take 10-20mg of endep per day and have the side effects of severe sedation so it's not uncommon for me to sleep up to 12hrs a day undisturbed by alarms noises etc. however if I do not take the medication I have a permanent numb patch and severe cramping burning sensations shooting pain and a total inability to perform even the most mundane housework and employment well that's impossible the physical activity involved in my work even at the lowest levels of activity is extremely painful as yet I still have no answers that can actually help me regain good quality of life so the search goes on I am truly grateful I have beautiful children who understand my limitations these days

I have been on Endep 10 for about 8 months now. I have nerve pain. Recently the nerve pain is still with me when I wake up. So I have taken another tablet. I am finding that it is not working during the day to take the pain away. I need to consult my Dr again. Up until now it has been working well. I found before taking Endep the only releif I got was from a frozen gel pack placed on my neck and shoulder when going to bed. It numbed my pain and I was able to get some sleep. I was waking up ti
