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.

I wake up at night so thirsty, I feel like I have been out in the desert. I chug down a bottle of water throughout the night. Now that causes me to have to run to the bathroom usually three times a night

I have dry mouth, too, mostly at night. Sometimes it gets so bad my mouth is almost glued shut.

I have it only at night, but its so bad that I have to keep gum or candy in my mouth. not every night, but most. It may be because I am not hydrating well enough during the day too.
