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.

Withdrawal symtoms with Januvia.
I have been having a feeling of fullness in my upper chest and pain in my back. I thought I was gaining weight as my bra felt tighter in that area. I also had been having constipation issues and could not have a decent bowel movement. After seeing a P.A. at a gastroenterologist office she put me on Miralax and more Citrucel to get me moving. That did help my constipation but did not help the fullness under my breast bone. I had my Family Physician run blood tests for my liver as I had not been feeling well. Those came back normal. A few months later I was still not feeling well and I saw my F.P. again. It seemed as though a light went on in his head and he looked very concerned. He said he would take me off the medication Januvia that I had been taking for some years and put me on Metformin. About 2 days later I was back in his office and I was having severe pain in the same area in my abdomen and pain in my upper back. I was in serious pain and I started crying. I had been waking up with a headache like I had never had before. My body was aching like I had the flu and my lymph-nodes all over my body were hurting like crazy. I did not have any respiratory problems to go with this event. I was in shock at how bad I felt. I told the doctor all this and I think he did not believe me. He gave me some painkiller that causes constipation so I took a 1/2 a pill and did not take anymore. I did not need any more incidents with constipation. I am wondering what caused all this because I still have abdominal pain and back pain after this incident. I was thinking that I had a withdrawal from the Januvia. Has any one else had an event like this after stopping Januvia? I would like to hear about it or if you know of anyone that has had an experience like this. Thanks
