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.

Significant hair loss on Tirosint.
I was sick for a while and my family MD tried to mess with my thyroid numbers. I ended up asking for a full blood test. I had calcium in my blood, not good. I had a para thyroid tumor, during surgery the ENT found cancer all over my deformed thyroid and had spread to lymph nodes. After surgery I felt great until I had radiation and felt bed since. 2 Weeks ago I saw my ENDO who said he should lower my 188 dose of Tirosint but was afraid I could not handle it due to my P450 issues. I am allergic to Synthroid. So he left me on it and I kept getting worse. I had ALL symptoms of being over dosed. I also am losing half my hair. I have been on Tirosint for about two years. I was going nutty, to the point of want to commit suicide. My family MD took me off for a week, I am still off of it, and I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. I also had a DNA test last week and I see a new ENDO this Wed. I hope I can return to LIFE once again. I have been nearly in bed for four years due to the para thyroid tumor and the thyroid cancer, then the radiation, then allergy, and over dosed (we think). My RN has her thyroid and is on 137 of Tirosint and has lost half her hair too. This is not good. I want my thick hair back. I want to feel like a HUMAN again. I know I cannot stay off the thyroid medication since I have no thyroid. But man, why is it so hard to deal with it? It totally can ruin your life if not watched and handled well.
