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.

50mg Zoloft vs 150mg Welbutrin
Hello - I am depressed and in the middle of finding the right med. I was on 50mg of Zoloft for a little under a month but the sexual side effects were just making my depression worse. I know this is a common side effect of SSRI's so after talking to my Dr he prescribed me Welbutrin. After some research, which can help AND hurt, I feel like the side effects of welbutrin are worse and/or more severe. All I want is a med that works that won't render me impotent or not allow me to ejaculate. Does anyone have experience with these meds, and if so, what are your thoughts/concerns/advice for the difference between these 2 meds. Thanks!
