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.

Alendronate
So disappointed after diligently losing 50 pounds the doctor prescribed alendronate and I'm gaining that weight back quickly so disappointed. Should I stop taking it to lose that weight?

I too have been on gilenya probably almost a year and I have gained alot of weight. I have also changed a medication to help with fatigue and was on copaxone prior. Sadly I had been on the shot so long it seemed to not be as effective and with a lot of steroids I began having issues with my back degenerating. I was also in a cast for 6 weeks for foot surgery and knee surgery on the same leg!! So I have not been able to be very active so slamming on more weight is a huge problem health wise. Need to find away to change the side effect as so many of us have weight gain problems being on it. I am very happy to see its not just me!!
