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.

not happy at all, have had bleeding, constipation, diaharea, gas, worse than I was before. This is a study I am on have not been reimbursed. Have called DR. 3 times because of bleeding she has not returned any phone calls. Still fearful about working and going out. It sucks to live like this!!!!!!!!!!!

I'M WORSE after having Solesta and I am really panicked
After getting a Solesta injection i now have no ability to stop anything coming out. I am sick with the prospect of a life of diapers or a Colostomy.....I had some moderate FI after years of struggling to calm bowels with a very restricted diet. Usually successful, but my doc suggested Solesta. Lucky me...I cannot get any information about reversing this. Its been 8 days, and there has been no change. I feel desperate, depressed and blindsided....
Does anyone have any information about reversal, or folks who got better after experiencing my symptoms.
It is contraindicated in IBD but i wonder WHY? I am wondering if a little inflammation of the bowels could have caused this. Anyone know of a doctor I can contact?
