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.

Smiffys friend
Breathing difficulties
I am trying to help a friend get to the cause of his breathlessness. He has had the op to help with the shaking, this has been successful, but is taking 1200 mg per day of madopar, in six doses. He is also taking 100mg of symetrel and 16mg of neupro (patches). He can barely walk 5 yards without wheezing and needing to rest. He is a member of a Parkinson group, but no-one there is displaying his kind of symptom. Can anyone help ?
