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.

Ponstan for menstrual migraine and cramps
Up until I was prescribed ponstan i suffered for years with terrible migraine and severe cramping and heavy bleeding with my period. I dreaded that time of the month. I tried every pain killer going apart from ponstan until prescribed by my doctor, after I eventually decided to tell him of my misery. I haven't had a migraine or cramps since and my bleeding has also lessened. I wish I'd known about ponstan years ago.
