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.

Reclipsen-Blood Clots
I was on Reclipsen for 6 weeks and was hospitalized for a bilateral pulmonary embolism. 6 weeks.

I've never smoked in my life. Age 24.

Please, please, please reconsider taking Reclipsen- the stories just keep getting worse. I am so happy to be alive but am now dealing with the aftermath of this...which may be long-term.

Blood Clots
Hi,

I was taking Reclipsen for about 3 years, but was really Apri first and the pharmacists kept switching back & forth and I didn't know the difference as I had never been on anything really every month before, completely healthy before all this. It turns out the pharmacists started carrying the generic reclipsen because it was less expensive than the Apri. Turns out I have three blood clots, one in my right leg and one in each one of my lungs, which ended up causing me severe complications. It almost took my life 3 times, I am now on my 8th surgery. I was in the hospital for over 2 months..I had a thoracentesis (sp?), an implantation of a filter in my IVC, and then a d-cordication along with another surgery to save my lung. They pulled out 500cc's of blood in my lung that they said was not there and was only fluid from pneumonia that it caused me, when in reality I was drowning internally from my lung filling up from blood, after they had sent me home & back in the emergency room less than 24 hours. They still do not know what caused my clots but the doctors in the hospital believe it was the birth control pills. I am still on blood thinners and it is 9 months later from the initial time this happened to me. I now have been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer with a tumor in my chest, that has to be removed from a surgery-the same as open heart surgery to get it removed, including cutting my breast bone in half. This is not what I had in mind, and am waiting on this surgery as I am only receiving treatment now at one of the best triage hospitals in the country and have specialists trying to figure out why this happened to me. I would not wish this on anyone, so please be careful on what you decide to put in your body. I am sorry for anyone this happened to.
