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.

Using loperamide for opiate withdrawals
I have been an IV heroin and oxycodone user daily for three months. I decided to quit and began researching otc meds to aid with my withdrawal symptoms and began reading a lot about loperamide. With skepticism, I went to the pharmacy and bought naproxen and generic Imodium tablets. They're 2mg and after almost 24 hours with no h, I took 50mg of loperamide and within a couple hours I began feeling much better. No more skin crawling, irritability, diarreah, sweats.. I felt fine. I continued this for four days and then went 48 hours with no loperamide and I was miserable. I slept a total of 4 hours in two nights and had had enough. I bought more loperamide and took 50mg last night about 9pm and by midnight I was sound asleep and had 9 straight hours of uninterrupted sleep, no bullsh**! I was skeptic but I honestly a believer that loperamide really does inhibit my opioid receptors and drastically decrease withdrawal symptoms. It's thanksgiving today and I'm truly grateful to feel well enough to spend time with friends and family without being sick!
