17 U.S. Code § 107 - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include—
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes [all mirrored content falls under this clause, any ads present are mirrored from the original site, mirrored content earns me no revenue whatsoever];
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work [this is a unique resource for the mentally ill, and preservation of it can be argued to be incredibly important];
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. [absolutely none whatsoever, as the original work no longer exists anywhere else (outside of whatever bits and pieces archive.org managed to capture) - the original site was intermittantly completely unavailable for a extended period of time before its SSL certificate expired (and was never renewed), and eventually the site went offline for good, then finally the DNS records were removed at some point prior to May 2018, so at this point it is well beyond the 'dead and rotting' stage]
The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.

This domain is not controlled by Jerod Poore, and I will NOT continue redirecting traffic from this domain to crazymeds.us [as I formerly did] while Jerod continues with his immature temper tantrum over adblock or continues to fail to maintain his site, fucking over his entire community and countless visitors in the process. [belated clarification: with specific regards to the adblock drama I was referring to Poore at one point replacing his entire site with a single page complaining about the amount of revenue lost to users with ad blocking active, which is something that I took extreme exception to because this affected ALL visitors to the site regardless of if or if not they were actually using ad blocking]
This mirror is unfortunately incomplete (and very slightly outdated), as /CrazyTalk/ was not included when I scraped the site (it was far too large to scrape given the site's extremely poor performance, my wish to avoid worsening the poor performance further, and other factors). If you're looking for a replacement forum, I suggest visiting https://www.crazyboards.org/forums/. There are issues with many of the mirrored pages, I am working on identifying and fixing them, but I do not have the time to address every single issue at this moment (although by now the majority of these issues have been resolved). Dynamic content is obviously completely broken (this is beyond my control), and the loss of /CrazyTalk/ is quite bad given how much good user-generated info was on there, but you have Jerod to "thank" for that. Maybe I'll bring it back online at some point, but it wouldn't be the same as before. For now, I suggest visiting CrazyBoards instead.
Note (Oct 9 2018): Infrequent additional updates regarding the status of this site will be posted on https://info.crazymeds.net

Alphabetical List of U.S. Medications Used to Treat Psychiatric and Neurological Conditions

List of Psychiatric and Neurological Medications

Here’s our big A-to-Z list of all the FDA-approved drugs we have articles about that are used to treat various psychiatric and neurological conditions. These are all the US brand and generic1, and some of the branded generic2 names we know of, along with a few of the more-popular product/trade names used outside of the US. The drugs should already be in alphabetical order by brand name. Clicking on the column heads for Generic Name/Active Ingredient3 and Class4 will sort the list by those columns, and you can switch between ascending and descending order. I also have the generic name in the brand column as many people will know only the generic name of a drug, especially some of the older ones.

We also have pages that group based upon their class or what they treat: antidepressants, antiepileptic drugs/anticonvulsants, antipsychotics, headache & neuropathic pain medications, anxiolytics/anti-anxiety medications, and mood stabilizers.

We don’t have a page for every med, and we probably never will. We don’t cover every psychiatric condition in the DSM nor every neurological condition, and probably never will.
Drugs that come in immediate as well as extended / time-release versions, and different forms (tablets, oral solution, injection, etc.) are not listed separately on this page (E.g. all the different Risperdals); unless they have a radically different name (Equetro and Tegretol, e.g.).

This page has our even bigger a-to-z-to-я-to-ת-to-و‎-to-ん-to-하 list of meds. It’s the same as this one, along with all the trade and generic names we know of used outside of the US in a variety of non-Latin character sets. There are also drugs that aren’t approved by the FDA but are approved in other countries to treat various conditions, including whatever few we may have articles about (reboxetine, e.g.).

1 You think there's just one generic name? HAH! First of all, a drug's generic name can change before it reaches the market. Then it can have different generic names in different countries, and that's not just variations on spelling and transliteration from the American alphabet God intended everyone to use! Latin alphabet to all those Commie squiggles other character sets. Oh no, there's supposed to be only One True Generic Name, AKA the International Non-proprietary Name (INN). Take Depakote's INN: valproate semisodium. Where do you see that used? Wikipedia, the UK and snarky references on Crazymeds, that's where. Even the spelling variations for different languages can be greater than the difference between Lamictal and Lamisil. Don't believe me? If you're ever in Helsinki and need to get a refill, make sure you bought plenty of vowels before you left. My favorites are for levetiracetam (generic Keppra), where you need to ask for levetirasetaamille, and escitalopram (generic Lexapro), where it's essitalopraami.

2 The term "branded generic" has three meanings:
1) A generic drug produced by a generics manufacturer that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company that makes the branded version. E.g. Greenstone Pharmaceuticals makes gabapentin, and they are owned by Pfizer, who also own Parke-Davis, the makers of Neurontin.
2) A branded generic is also a generic drug given a 'brand' name by the manufacturer (e.g. Teva's Budeprion), but otherwise has the same active ingredient as the original branded version (Wellbutrin).
3) A branded generic is also a generic drug given a 'brand' name by the manufacturer (e.g. Sanofi-Aventis' Aplenzin, which is bupropion hydrobromide) and uses a salt of the active ingredient that is different from the original branded version and other generics (Wellbutrin, Budeprion and all the others are bupropion hydrochloride). The FDA says they're the same thing, and, as usual, the data are contradictory. While most evidence now indicates that the FDA is wrong and the differences can be significant.
Which means while base paroxetine is over 20 times as potent as base fluoxetine, and because of paroxetine's screwy pharmacokinetics and the way the salts are absorbed, it takes only 20mg of Prozac (fluoxetine hydrochloride) to be the equivalent of 10mg of Paxil (paroxetine hydrochloride), and I don't know where Pexeva (paroxetine mesylate) falls in that equation.
For our purposes a "branded generic name" refers to the second and third definitions.

3 The generic column will have the active ingredient, which is often a salt or some other form of the free base substance (Usually hydrochloride - abbreviated HCl (such as venlafaxine HCl) - when the generic name is in the brand column. With most antidepressants the active ingredient is a salt of the freebase, with other classes of drugs it is often, but not always, the same thing (lamotrigine, topiramate e.g.). The active ingredient is also used for drugs that have a different salt than the original drug - such as Pexeva, which is paroxetine mesylate, while Paxil is paroxetine HCl, and drugs that come in other forms, usually the long-lasting injections. If you need an explanation of salt, free base, and how they differ, ask teh interwebs or someone who still remembers high school chemistry, as I barely have a handle on it myself.
When you see USP after a generic name, that's not a salt of the freebase, that stands for United States Pharmacopeia. USP is a reference standard for purity and blah, blah, blah. What it really means is the drug has been around for so long that when doctors originally prescribed it they did so using a traditional Rx, i.e. a recipe, and pharmacists mixed it with other ingredients listed in the Rx or from their formulary, and made the pills just for you.

4 As far as we're concerned. We currently group all crazy meds into three broad categories: antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) / anticonvulsants (ACs), antidepressants (ADs), and antipsychotics (APs). These classifications have more to do with chemistry than anything else. E.g. Strattera being classified as an antidepressant even though it is not approved to treat depression, Topamax being primarily prescribed to treat migraines. We save that sort of detail for the full-blown pages on each med.
