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.

Motrin/Ibuprofen vs. Meloxicam
I have had back pain for more than 50 years. My back was bent due to the pain. Doctors said, it is due to scoliosis. For the last 15 plus years, they gave me Motrin/Ibuprofen 800 mg three times a day plus exercise, chiropractor, therapy...Nothing worked. My new Doctor (Pain Management) said, pain due to a minor scoliosis and arthritis. He gave me Meloxicam 7.5mg two times a day. "Magic" happened. After taking only 3 tablets, I'm a new man (63 years old). The pain is gone about 70%. My back is straight almost as your pencil. Try Meloxicam if Ibuprofen did not work for you.
