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.

Meloxicam helps with knee swelling/pain
I was prescribed Meloxicam 4 months ago. I have not had any issues with it. I was prescribed 15 mg tabs and only take half as needed. I may go a week without needing it. Typically when I do a lot of squatting or yard work is when my knees swell. Take half a tablet and 30 minutes later feel like new again.
