Ready to learn more? As you track your health with your PatientsLikeMe account, you are also contributing to our repository of patient reported data.
For example, when you enter your past and current treatments, that information gets added to the PatientsLikeMe community treatment reports, which patients use to learn more about treatments and understand their own experiences. If you stopped a drug because of its cost or side effects, that's useful information to share. The more you share about your experience with a treatment, the more other members and researchers can learn about how this treatment is acting in the real-world.
You can view condition, treatment and symptom information based on the data members provide in the LEARN menu.
We’ve broken it down so you can search by condition, treatment or symptom:
You’ll also see bookmarks here for any conditions you’ve reported in My Health. We’ve gone ahead and marked them with a green checkmark for you!
Community reports can help you understand the experience of taking a treatment or having a condition, including symptoms and side-effects and how people manage them.
In addition, you’ll find tips and advice from other members and links to relevant forum threads in the reports.
Like all information you find on the web or elsewhere, it is important to carefully compare it against many other sources. Our symptom and treatment reports reflect data that has been shared by the community. They cannot be guaranteed to be accurate, and they are not intended to represent complete information about a treatment, symptom, or condition.
You should use PatientsLikeMe as one more source of information in your quest to manage your disease, as our site is not meant to be taken as official medical advice. Always consult multiple information sources and, of course, your doctor.
