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.

Birth Control and Weight Gain
I have been taking Viorele birth control since May 15, 2014 and gained about 7 pounds of weight. Not sure if it is water or fat or a combination of both. I have always been very fit and eat very clean. My typical breakfast is an egg white scramble with quinoa and I eat very little. For lunch I have white meat chicken and vegetables and for dinner usually fish (talapia) and some kind of salad. I also work out about 4 times a week. Since I have taken Viorele, I can't seem to control my weight. I watch in horror is my weight increases about 2 pounds per month. I am thinking of getting OFF of the Viorele. I am NOT taking it for birth control, but rather taking it for severe mood swings and heart palpatations during the week prior to my period. I am going to try and get off of the Viorele because I don't like that i have gained weight while on it.
