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.

Seizures following Zantac
After going several years without a seizure, last night I had two, separated by four hours. This was following a day where I'd taken Zantac twice, after not having used it at all for many years--doesn't seem like a coincidence.

Zantac and irregular heartbeat
30+ years ago I had take Zantac for a duodenal ulcer. Since then I have had an ectopic heartbeat where it seems to stop then beats oddly for about 5 minutes. I've noticed in the studies that long term heart beat problems after taking Zantac is at 0% well I can attest that it does happen.
