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.

Metoprolol succinate 25 mgs
I have experienced weight gain, coughing, tingling feet, bloating after eating, swollen eyes, mouth, face, and hands and feet, back nerve pain, and hot flashes. My doctor says Metprolol does not cause any of these side effects. I told him that it does because I read the side effects on the pamphlet that came with the pills, I didn't read it when I first started taking the pills, until I started having these ssymptoms. He said keep taking the medicine.
