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.

URI/Sinus Infection
I was diagnosed with MS in Sept of 98 and began Copaxone therapy in April 99 after the birth of my son. I continued with this treatment for 13 years at which time my Neurologist suggested Tysabri to which
I started and was taking up until Dec 12, 2014. I got sick on Jan. 2nd 2015 with chills, fever, body aches what I took to be the flu. Since that date I have been on 4 antibiotics and have had continuing Upper Respiratory Infection, Sinus Infections. It is now May 16, 2015 and I still have not been able to return for my Tysabri Infusion due to recurring infections. I saw an allergist and am happy to say I have no allergies but somewhat disappointed. Not that I want allergies, just that I would love an explanation of what is going on with me? At least then I would know something. My dilemma the Allergist said if I could give you Steroids I would load you up and that would take care of this thing. But on Tysabri my understanding is no Steroids. So can any one tell me if they know since I've been off the Tysabri since Dec can you take steroids for infections.
