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.

Should I get the vivatrol shot?
Been smoking heroin for a little over a year and just spent the past week in detox. About to get out tomorrow and have the option of getting the vivatrol shot. I know I should get it but my mind keeps telling me ill be fine without it. I know I'm just lying to myself and that if I don't get it I most likely will use my first week out. How has vivatrol helped you or saved you. I know I should take the shot but I'm really not ready to quit using.
