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.

Just started taking Olestyr and finding it hard to fit in the "take other medication one hour before Olestyr, and four to six hours after taking Olestyr." So, for maximum benefit, is it best to wait four hours or six hours - why the two hour difference? Also, my Pharmacist said not to take Olestyr for at least four hour after my morning Thyroid medication as it can cut the effect of Synthroid by 50 per cent. Thanks and looking forward to answers.
