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.

Cardiologist prescribed 25 mg. I looked it up and decided not to take it. I have had 2 heart attacks and then finally a triple bypass 9 years ago. I went off all medications after the operation and only take a baby asperin.Sometimes I have high blood pressure and I take a pill only then, but not regularly. The name is Irbesartan. My experiance after14 years is most medicines are bad for you. They slow down your metabulism, you gain weight and become fat. Your tired all the time etc. Pills are every americans quick fix. Eat healthy and exercise and get off all medications that affect your weight and slow you down to inactivity. Over 55 men look into testerone treatment. It's the fountain of youth. Lots of energy where you want to exercise and paint the house. You burn fat.

The first 8 weeks being on the medicine, 25 mg. I gained 9 pounds and now up to 16 pounds. Told my doctor and he said that it doesn't make you gain weight....?? Really?! I had nightmares for about couple of weeks, constant headache for around 4 weeks or so, little bit of joint/ muscle pain and sweaty. My body got use to the medicine except the weight gain and sweaty.
