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.

doctor gave me estrogel a week ago still haven't used it
Hi there, i had a hysterectomy at the age of 22, had HRT for the first few months. I am now 42 and have been having dizziness, what feels like heart palpation, hot flashes, (which i think was some sort of flu bug as my whole family was having them too) anxiety, hair loss and general aches and pains. I'm scared to even try using the estrogel pump, for fear of the side effects. Am i crazy not to?
